Response text:

The action we are currently taking is that we are in discussions with the members of the Aviation Fuels Committee, as to some suitable wording to be placed in the specifications. Any additions to the specification must be agreed by the AFC members in full, but the executive committee is where the initial work is done and initial decisions are taken.
