[holding answer 26 January 2004]Following his letter of 13 November, the hon. Member will recall that I telephoned him to discuss his constituent's concerns. The hon. Member will also recall that, in early 2003, we both met with Mr. Williams to discuss various export control-related issues. We are well aware of the difficulties that Mr. Williams of Ling Dynamics Ltd. has been facing and are doing as much as we can to assist him.
