HC Deb 18 June 1969 vol 785 c477
16. Mr. Onslow

asked the President of the Board of Trade when he expects to receive the complete report of the Roskill Commission.

Mr. Crosland

During the course of next year.

Mr. Onslow

Can the right hon. Gentleman say how soon thereafter he will be willing to publish the report and when he would expect the House to have an opportunity to debate it? Assuming that the recommendations are acceptable to Parliament, how soon would he expect construction to start?

Mr. Crosland

The answer to all three parts of the supplementary question is "as soon as reasonably possible".
