asked the Secretary of State for Trade (1) whether he will now announce the date for the publication of the IPU delegation's report to him of conditions of tea workers on British owned estates in Sri Lanka;(2) whether, before the publication of the IPU delegation's report on the conditions on British-owned tea estates in Sri Lanka, he will give British subjects or companies mentioned in the report an opportunity to review its conclusions and to publish in the report their replies to any allegations therein contained.

I thought it right to make the report generally available as quickly as possible, and it is being published today. All concerned now have the opportunity to study it and express views on it if they wish.
