This is a very technical area. But nevertheless very important to individual investors. The response was very largely written by Mark Bentley, to whom members should be most grateful, with input from Peter Parry, Mark Northway and myself. Comments by members and others on the initial draft of our response have been taken into account in this final version, which has now been submitted to the LSE.
