Information Sharing Index consultation

Just spotted something curious. In a statement to the House on April 26th, Beverley Hughes said:
We will seek Parliament's agreement in autumn 2006 to the main Regulations to govern the operation of the index. We will consult publicly on draft regulations in the summer of 2006.
But on July 5th the following was quietly slipped in to one of her answers:
We will consult over the autumn on draft regulations that will bring the index into operation. The draft regulations will be laid before both Houses for debate under affirmative resolution procedures.
In other words, the consultation on the Information Sharing (aka 'Children's') Index has been put back, and the announcement made in print so small that we almost missed it.
