May I suggest that the Leader of the House take this matter a little more seriously? Is he aware that the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation has not apologised to the Select Committee? He has said that if the Committee is offended he is sorry. That is another matter. But is there not a perfectly well established procedure, when a Select Committee reports to the House, for the Government to have the opportunity to reply on financial matters to the Select Committee in a proper manner and, if they so wish, to have their reply published? I put my own name to this Motion with some regret, because it is a pity that this kind of thing should happen.
