I cannot give an undertaking that the report of this committee will be published and laid before the House. As I am sure the hon. Member appreciates, much of the information which will be put at their disposal, and many of their recommendations, will be secret.

On the question of time, I cannot of course anticipate how long they will take over this matter. I am sure that the hon. Gentleman will realise and agree that they should take as much time as they feel inclined to do because this is a very large subject—a very broad subject—which they have to go into, and I should not wish them to make a hurried and ill-considered recommendation for lack of time.
