§ Mr. HACKING
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the proposals for the re-grouping of productive units in the various sections of the iron and steel industry which were under discussion in December of last year have yet materialised?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
Negotiations are proceeding, but the right hon. Gentleman will appreciate that, as proposals of this nature raise complex issues and affect a large number of interests, the negotiations must necessarily occupy a considerable time.
