Did the Lib Dem 4Rs Commision ever issue a report?

Back in June of 2006 I wrote a rather uncharitable post about the announcement of the Liberal Democrats' 4Rs Commission.

The relevant page of the party's website says that the Commission was due to produce:
a final report in Spring 2007 that will summarize its findings and outline the ideas they believe should be taken forward.
I have searched, but I cannot find any sign of that report on the party website or anywhere else. Does anyone know if it ever appeared? Or was the Commission quietly disbanded when Ming became leader?

The Chair Dr Bethan Marshall was seriously ill for some months and the work of the group effectively came to a halt as a result. I don't believe there are now any plans to revive it, especially as the Federal Policy Committee has subsequently established a party Policy Working Group on Schools chaired by Cllr James Kempton. This group will report to the Spring 2009 party conference.
