asked the Minister of Public Building and Works if he will institute discussions with other Departments and the building and allied industries in an endeavour to arrive at a clearer definition of industrialised building.

No, Sir. I consider that the description in the Ministry of Housing Circular 76 of 1965 is adequate, and is applicable to all types of building.

In view of the Minister's dependence on two on-site systems for the supply of about 60 per cent. of industrial building, what is he doing to tell those who are operating the system whether they will receive the S.E.T. repayment or not? They ought to know by now and the present situation really is disgraceful.

If the hon. Gentleman wishes to put down a Question about S.E.T., he should do so, and not tack it on to a totally irrelevant question.

Is the Minister aware that it is impossible to put down Questions on S.E.T. to him? He will find that himself if he consults the Table.

I have answered a number of questions on S.E.T. from the hon. Gentleman and others which have been properly related to the original Question. This Question was about the definition of industrial building.

On a point of order. Mr. Speaker, may I have a Ruling at some convenient time on whether we can put down Questions on S.E.T. for the Minister to answer?

That is not a question for the Chair, but a matter to be decided between the Member and the Minister.
