Sir L. Lyle

asked the Minister of Supply whether he has yet disposed of the shares in the companies for which he recently invited offers; and whether he can make any statement thereon.

Sir A. Duncan

No, Sir. In the case of two companies, definite offers were requested by 31st January and the offers received are now under consideration. In the case of the other three companies, negotiations with the applicants have not yet reached the stage of definite offers.
