Mr. SHIRLEY BENN
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has now obtained the consent to the publication of the summaries of their evidence of those traders who gave evidence before the 2745W Sub-Committee of the Advisory Committee on Commercial Intelligence, on which evidence the Sub-Committee's Report, issued on the 28th January last, was founded; whether any of the traders have refused to allow their evidence to be published; if so, how many; and on what date the summaries of evidence will now be published in accordance with the undertaking given to the Advisory Committee by the Permanent Secretary to the Board of Trade?
§ Mr. PRETYMAN
In all cases in which replies have been received the witnesses have agreed to publication. Some replies are still outstanding, but I hope that the Paper will be published in the course of a few days.
