I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for East Aberdeen (Flight-Lieutenant Booth-by) on 16th June last, to which, at the moment, I can add nothing.

Is my right hon. Friend aware that he gave me that reply some time ago, when I asked the same Question, and that it really does not answer the Question?

On that occasion I referred my right hon. Friend to another reply give to another hon. Member.

But that reply did not answer the Question. Why not give the answer to me directly?
