He said an external service provider had to be appointed due to the volumes of comments received. The service provider will analyse the comments and provide a concept report by 20 January, followed by a final report later in February.

Parliament received more than 30,000 representations via e-mail and the same number in hard copies. A total of 121 organisations and individuals have requested the opportunity to address the committee on the Bill.
