§ Mr. Ede
I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answer which I gave last week to the hon. Member for Wallasey (Mr. Marples). The meeting. to which I then referred, with representatives of mountaineering interests took place yesterday and, as soon as I have had time to study its recommendations. I will announce my decision.
