It remains my intention if funds can be provided to re-erect the trilithon next year.

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that people were rather expecting that it would be done in the very near future? Can he give us an assurance that it will be done next year?

No, Sir, I cannot give that assurance, but it is my very strongest hope that it will be done next year.
