asked the Lord Privy Seal what advice the Overseas Development Agency has received from the Crown Agents concerning the safety of the corridor roof structure of the new school hostel at Port Stanley, Falkland Islands; if he is satisfied that the structure is safe; and how soon he expects the hostel will be completed and handed over to the Falkland Islands Government.

The Crown Agents have told us that they cannot advise us on the safety of this structure until they have received the results of a further check which the contractors' engineering advisers are being asked to undertake urgently. Until we have this advice it is not possible to say when we will be able to hand over the hostel. I hope, however, that the matter will be resolved satisfactorily very soon.
