Mr. Ashley

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a further statement on the progress of his Department's talks with the Distillers Company concerning children on the Y list.

Mr. Alfred Morris

As my hon. Friend knows, I share his deep concern that this affair should be satisfactorily resolved as swiftly as possible. To this end, my Department is continuing discussion with the interested parties. I hope to be able to make a further statement shortly.
