Member for Reigate (Mr. Gardiner) on 16 November 1979, what is the timetable for the decision regarding the possible withdrawal of the optional arrangements under which repayment traders can obtain monthly value added tax repayments from Her Majesty's Customs and Excise; and whether he intends to consult representatives of the construction industry and other industries that would be affected by such a change.
