§ Mr. Michael Brown
To ask the President of the Board of Trade, pursuant to his answer of 6 March,Official Report, column 229, when he intends to announce the Government's decision on the introduction of a telecommunications key escrow. 
§ Mr. Ian Taylor
As I made clear in my previous answer on 6 March, discussions on this important issue are continuing. It would be inappropriate to establish at this stage any artificial time constraints.
