Simon,
I have already sent answers to 5 questions that the committee asked
me back in February. A month or two later I got the proofs of my answers
for the record. I modified these, sent them back then heard nothing. 2 weeks
ago it appears that the corrected proofs were stolen from the clerk's car
(sounds familiar !). I sent back the corrections again. If you want a
copy of the answers which relate to Scientific Advice on Climate Change
(relating to explanations for the warming and whether the government
was getting the right advice) I can send you one.
One of the questions specifically asked
about reasonable explanations, other than anthropogenic, for the rise
in surface temperatures. In my responses I had to correct some of their
questions, even what IPCC and GCM stood for. From the tone of the
questions I got the feeling that they had been drafted by someone with
a leaning towards the skeptics. The questions were also pretty basic.

Cheers
Phil
