§ Mr. Dykes
I am grateful for that answer. As the proposals made in the other place by Lord Bethell fit in very well with that putative timetable, will my right hon. Friend please give maximum encouragement to those proposals, bearing in mind that they reflect some of the utterances and expressions of opinion made some weeks ago in this House on the proposals of my hon. Friend the Member for Aldridge-Brownhills (Mr. Shepherd)?
§ Mr. Stokes
Although this subject is liable to be a political minefield in view of the legislation that my right hon. Friend is thinking of, will he comfort himself with the thought that this subject is not of great interest to the man in the street, and is of interest mainly to media people and journalists?
