A full briefing on the GRO Modernisation Project was provided to the association on 9 May 2002. The issues raised at the briefing and in the association's subsequent letter are currently being investigated. A number of those issues are not straightforward and require to be discussed with other appropriate persons/bodies and this has contributed to the delay in responding to them. A representative of the association was contacted on 10 June 2002 and informed of the position. As soon as the various issues have been fully examined a reply will be sent to the association.
