This is most unsatisfactory. Is it not a fact that this report has been in the hands of the right hon. Gentleman for a considerable time now and that the industry would like a reply in order to know what it is to do in the future? This industry is in a petty parlous plight and desires to know the recommendations of the Secretary of State.
§ Mr. Maclay
The implications of the scheme must be carefully considered before a final decision is reached. Many interests are involved, and recent considerations must be looked at very carefully.
