Bob Spink: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list those individuals and bodies that have submitted additional evidence and comments on the proposed Shellhaven London Gateway port public inquiry following his extension of the inquiry in 2005. 
Dr. Ladyman: The Secretary of State extended in January 2005 the period given for the receipt of representations on the new highways evidence submitted by the Applicant. There was no extension of the public inquiry itself.
The Secretary of State received representations and comments during the consultation period, in the extension period and after the end of the extension period from individuals and organisations as listed. In some cases the parties' comments were reiterations of their previous evidence rather than submission of any additional evidence.
