My Department has however recently conducted a review of the 2003 Order and I can confirm that a draft Rates and Charges Order has been published on foot of that review. That draft Order is currently the subject of a public consultation process. On completion of the public consultation process I will consider any submissions made and, if necessary, make appropriate amendments to the Rates and Charges Order.
