Examination of Witnesses (Questions 1020
WEDNESDAY 30 NOVEMBER 2005
Q1020 Lord Maxton:
I presume that is available on the website as well?
Lord Triesman: It is, and because I liked it
so much I went back to the website, which you can recapture at
another time of your choosing.
Q1021 Lord Maxton:
You podcasted it, did you?
Lord Triesman: You could not quite hear the
trombones and saxophones at the same quality; it just took the
edge off it for me.
Just one final question, for information. Lord Carter's Report,
which we have referred to a number of times, has been with the
Foreign Office; for how long has it been with the Foreign Office
Lord Triesman: It is still with Lord Carter
and I think he is still talking to the principal partners. I think
I can say, hand on heart, that the decision about whether he has
arrived at the final formulations is wholly in his hands and I
just hope that we will see the Report soon. We have been waiting
a good time and I know that he is keen to get it out.
Thank you very much. You have been very patient. We are very,
very grateful for your replies and for the way you have handled
the questions, and perhaps if we have got any other questions
we could write to you and put them down on paper. There are one
or two which have come up but we may have a few extra. Thank you
very much indeed.
Lord Triesman: I will be delighted to do that
and thank you all very much.
Chairman: Thank you.
