We are moving now to recruit a co-ordinator to work with the sector
in assembling the information the Working Group will need to develop
the strategy, and to develop a website to keep the sector informed
and provide it with a channel for communication.

It is intended that the first draft of the strategy will be
completed by the summer of 2009.
