asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will make a statement on Rolls-Royce contract procedures.

On the basis of evidence available to me I see nothing which reflects discredit on the company. Rolls-Royce, my hon. Friend and I have all asked the hon. Member for Birmingham, Perry Bar (Mr. Rooker) to supply further evidence to support his allegations, but he has declined to do so. As the House will be aware, Rolls-Royce has investigated them and has concluded that there is no substance in the hon. Member's allegations, and the persons referred to by him as witnesses have not supported the allegations.
