  Ms Harney: I propose to take Questions Nos. 21, 53 and 127 together.

The inquiry referred to is expected to have completed its work by the end of March 2005. I have received proposals from the group, which represents former patients of the person referred to by the Deputy, requesting the establishment of a redress board. These proposals are being examined, and I will revert to the group as soon as possible.
