We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. On July 26, 2005, we extended the deadline for filing case briefs and rebuttal briefs to August 26, 2005, and August 31, 2005, respectively.

On September 1, 2005, CIL submitted a letter to the Department requesting that the Department remove the petitioners’ rebuttal brief because it contained a new argument.

On September 13, 2005, the petitioners resubmitted its brief as requested by the Department.
