We have already authorised derequisitioning of the site and are now negotiating with the owner about the disposal of the buildings.

Mr. McKie:

Will the hon. Gentleman bear in mind the necessity of giving a decision on this matter as early as possible because a great contribution to production is being lost through the delay?

I will bear that in mind, but I am not sure that the delay is entirely on my side.
