§ Mr. Dalyell
To ask the Prime Minister (1) if he will make it his policy to publish the Scott report before 28 July 1995; and if he has yet formed a decision as to the appropriate price to be charged for the report and its related documents;
(2) if he will make it his policy that the price of the published Scott report be kept to a minimum.
§ Mr. Newton
I have been asked to reply.
As my right hon. Friend, the Prime Minister stated when he announced the terms of reference for the inquiry, Official Report, 16 November 1992, columns 74–75, Sir Richard Scott will be entirely free to decide on the publication of his report. The inquiry will report to my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade.
It is too early to comment on the price of the report.
