§ 88. Mr. Gibson-Watt
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what progress has been made in the negotiations on pitwood prices between the National Coal Board and the home-grown timber industry; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Scott-Hopkins
I understand that an agreement on the main points was reached at a meeting between the two sides last Friday. A number of further details have still to be worked out but the main negotiations have been completed.
