I would refer my right hon. Friend to the answer which I gave last Tuesday to a question on this subject by the hon. Member for Central Aberdeenshire (Mr. R. W. Smith) and to which, in the meantime, I have nothing to add.
As I explained to the hon. Member for Central Aberdeen last week, this scheme has been approved by the Department concerned and is now with the banks. We can do nothing until the banks have approved the Articles and Memorandum of Association and as soon as they have done so there will be no delay.
Cannot my right hon. Friend complain to the banks and point out the strong feeling of resentment there is on the part of Scottish Members that Scotland is being treated, in comparison with England, very adversely.
