§ Mr. Canavan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will make a statement explaining the reasons for the delay in the negotiations between the Government, the trades unions, the liquidator and potential purchasers of the Scottish Daily News.
§ Mr. Gregor Mackenzie
The Government are not involved in any such negotiations as these are a matter for the368W liquidator. I understand that the liquidator is continuing his efforts to dispose of the plant and premises.
