Lord Clement-Jones: My Lords, before the noble Lord sits down, I appreciate much of what he has said today, but could he elucidate for me the relationship between the MRC's TOMBOLA research and the HTA research? He was almost implying that if the HTA review was favourable, taken together with other aspects such as the Dutch research, it might be possible not to have to wait until that full 2005 project of the TOMBOLA research was complete, which was one of the points I was trying to make.

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: My Lords, it would be difficult for me to go further on that matter. I was simply trying to say that various research projects and assessments are taking place and that we shall look at each one on its merits. I should prefer to write to the noble Lord in more detail to explain the different approaches in relation to research and how we shall tackle them.
