CASS points out that:
The Bank's lengthy response recognises many of the problems raised in the letter, and states that they will be fed into the mid-term review to be carried out this spring. On some issues, such as release of monitoring reports and consultation on the mid-term review findings, however, the response is weak and non-comittal.
