HC Deb 25 March 1964 vol 692 c462
36. Mr. Lee

asked the Minister of Aviation on what date the Lang Report will be published.

Mr. Amery

I cannot, at this stage, give a date for publication.

Mr. Lee

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that two months have elapsed since the Lang Committee was set up? We know that the Public Accounts Committee is considering this matter, but will the right hon. Gentleman now assure us that we can expect the Lang Committee to report at any rate within the next month?

Mr. Amery

As I said, I am not in a position to say what the date will be.

Mr. Gordon Walker

Will the right hon. Gentleman give an undertaking that the report will be published before the General Election?

Mr. Amery

Rightly or wrongly, it is not I who takes the decision about the election.
