An Agreed Programme for Government contains a commitment to establish the Personal Injuries Assessment Board. I expect shortly to present to Government, in accordance with the usual procedures, the report of the interdepartmental implementation group, which I received recently. I intend to make the report public after it has been considered by the Government.
