On Tuesday, in four columns of very close type in HANSARD, I made a statement which I was asked to make. I would be very willing to try to answer any precise questions upon this subject, such as this one, and I anticipated that the Questions on it would probably appear next week on the Order Paper. I would propose to arm myself with the best information I can, because I am anxious not to make a statement to the House on this matter except after close and careful consultation with my scientific advisers.
