§ Mr. H. Brooke
These talks are in active progress, but my right hon. Friend is not yet in a position to make a statement about them.
§ Mr. Brooke
With the best will in the world, I cannot give the hon. Member a definite answer to that question, because it depends not only on the Official Side but on the Staff Side. The talks have been going well, and I hope that they will not be unduly prolonged.
