asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he has now communicated to the chairman of the National Enterprise Board and the chairman of BL the views expressed by hon.

Friend the Member for Abingdon (Mr. Benyon), as expressed in the House on 6 February. I do not propose to place a copy of my letter in the Library.
