§ Mr. Teddy Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what is his policy on publishing the House of Fraser report(a) once legal proceedings arising out of it are completed and (b) after the serious fraud squad indicates that no prosecutions are appropriate; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Redwood
My right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State, has made it clear that it is his intention to publish the report at the earliest possible moment consistent with the even-handed administration of justice.
