That must mean that a version for checking by other government departments must be going out any day now.

With only just over a month since the close of the consultation it is unlikely that civil servants have even read all of the substantive consultations.  So it can only be the case that fairly minor changes are proposed.  clearly many issues were flagged up during the consultation but just as many only found their way into final consultation submissions, especially relating to time consuming points of detail. 

My comment:

This is disgusting.
