Further to my answer to the hon. Member for Wyre Forest (Mr. Coombs) on 28 November 1991, Official Report, column 590, about the review by the Science and Engineering Research Council of neutron science, formal notice was given on 16 December 1991 of the United Kingdom's intention to terminate the present Institut Laue Langevin (ILL) convention with effect from 1 January 1994, and of our wish to replace it with a new convention from that date. Discussions on this are now in progress with French and German partners in ILL.
