I ask my hon. Friend to be a little patient. The NEB has been in existence for only five months and, as I have demonstrated, it has made considerable progress so far. For example, my hon. Friend will be interested to know that it has appointed directors for the North-West and for the North. These are senior men, based at Liverpool and Newcastle. The aim of the Board is still that it should extend its interests into profitable manufacturing industries, and I shall be giving it all the encouragement that I can to do that.
