Mr. Allan Stewart

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress has been made to establish talks about the government of Scotland.

Mr. Younger

The Labour Party has already agreed to take part and my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and I still hope to secure the participation of the other two parties.
