We believe that the work we’re undertaking and have undertaken has shown great progress, however, it is not appropriate to establish a fixed deadline saying we must finish by that point.

We have to try to make progress but we cannot have a noose around a neck to say we have to have a given date by which we must finish. We need to work calmly, we need to analyse all our work and so not establish artificial deadlines. Let’s work in good faith to finish the document. Let’s not impose a deadline to conclude such a sensitive work.
