HC Deb 06 May 1976 vol 910 c431W
Sir Bernard Braine

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs why there has been delay in the completion of Lord Shackleton's economic and fiscal report on the Falkland Islands which had hitherto been expected before the forthcoming general election in the islands; and when he now expects to receive that report.

Mr. Rowlands

The completion of Lord Shackleton's report proved a longer task than was anticipated. My right hon. Friend now expects to receive the report in the course of May.
