New meaning for consultation?

AS A person with an interest in the disabled, I am disappointed that H.M.Government introduced the Welfare Reform Bill before Parliament on February 16 and made a public announcement on the same subject the following day, before the closure of the consultation period on Disability Living Allowance.

It suggests any representations individuals or organisations made on the issue were not considered, or perhaps even read If so this is outrageous and the term consultation takes on a complete new meaning.
