"It's become a little bit of a, to use the term a 'dumping ground' for some of the other measures that are just a little bit difficult for the government or a bit micro, so it's really an odd fit in what's actually been referred to the committee over all.

"I think what underlies this review is that it does seek to recognise that, it's talking about setting up the system for the 21st century."
