MONDAY 23 APRIL 2001

MR NIGEL CRISP, MR ROBIN YOUNG, SIR MICHAEL BICHARD, KCB, MR WILLIAM RICKETT AND MR GEOFFREY PODGER

Chairman

  180. Would you circulate the paper as nobody else in the Committee has it?
  (Mr Young) I hope we are agreeing that one and a half or two put sport into Health, which I thought was the burden of your question and I was trying to answer that[16].

Mr Burns

  181. The half is Consumer Affairs, Public Health and the Environment.
  (Mr Young) I was counting Belgium and the Netherlands in there.

  182. Belgium half and the Netherlands full, so we do have the same chart.
  (Mr Young) Good. I was trying to help by saying that in only two—

Chairman

  183. Let us have a note.
  (Mr Young) Of course[17].

  Chairman: Thank you. It remains for me to thank you all for coming; an interesting session. I am sorry we could not give you any coffee and biscuits but it is probably good for you.
