Has the A & L Direct ISA 2 Bonus Gone?

I moved a load of mini cash ISA dosh to the A&L Direct ISA 2 some time ago, on Martin's recommendation, and also got a new one for this tax year. Earlier in the year the web adverts talked about 4.5% plus 0.7% bonus (making 5.2%). I notice from tthe web site that there is no mention of the bonus now. Has it been withdrawn? Even the previous interest rates pages don't mention it.
If the bonus has been withdrawn, how do I make sure that I get my bonus on accounts set-up when the bonus was available?

    Thanks for the info Yorkshireboy. I must have just crept under the wire with my last ISA as they didn't send confirmation until 14/4/06. I do have the magic 608 numer account. I hope this also applies to transferred ISA accounts and ToISA accounts which were transferred earlier in 2006. I'll loos at the paperwork to see what account numbers they asigned.
