As the hon. Member will I hope appreciate, the last few weeks have seen a unique set of events and circumstances, and I sincerely apologise that, amongst all of those, there has been a delay in responding to these questions. Unfortunately it is taking time to collate the required information to answer the hon. Member's questions and I am not yet in a position to respond fully. I will write to him when the information is available, and a copy of this letter will be placed in the Library of The House.

I apologise again for the delay in responding and once information is received I will ensure it is forwarded immediately.
