asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has received the report of the Committee on Scottish Peat Utilisation; and if he will make a statement.

Yes. The report was submitted to me at the beginning of March and was published on 14th March. The report is a very comprehensive one and I am grateful to Sir Edward Appleton and the members of the Committee for the careful investigagation they have undertaken. I shall give very close consideration to their various conclusions and recommendations. I might add that as the experimental work at Gardrum Moss is now at an end, the peat station has been closed. However, peat production is being developed there by a private concern.
