I think that the hon. Gentleman knows that when I was at the Board of Trade we instituted a Government grant to the Crafts Council, I think in 1948, and this was abolished in 1963. The hon. Gentleman is very active in this matter and I pay tribute to the work which he is doing. Whilst I cannot give a promise that there will be any assistance in the present case, we are always ready to consider requests for financial assistance in appropriate cases affecting crafts.
