§ Mr. McGrady
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what assessment he has made of the surveys undertaken by Mr. Alan Gray in respect of the economy in Northern Ireland; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Ancram
I am aware of Mr. Gray's recent book, which reports the results of his surveys of multinational manufacturing companies and international tour operators. These confirm the Government's view that lasting peace can unlock enormous potential for industrial and tourism growth in Northern Ireland and, indeed, in the island of Ireland.
