§ Mr. W. Hamilton
With the permission of the House, I wish to make a personal statement.
In the debate yesterday I stated that the Preside It and Vice-President of the Selby Bridge Company were respectively Sir Clive Milnes-Coates, Bart., and the Earl of Halifax.
This statement was based on information supplied to me by the House of Commons Library staff. I have received this morning from the member of the staff concerned a letter to the effect that these two gentlemen are not connected with the Selby Bridge Company, but with the Ardwark Bridge, Yorkshire, owned by the Yorkshire Farmers Ltd.
I apologise to the House for the mistake that was quite innocently made.
