I have dealt with that matter in answer to an earlier Question. [HON. MEMBERS: "No".] I did not speak about the future, I said that we had not applied to be considered for membership. However, if the House feels that this matter merits special consideration I feel sure that the Government will listen to all proposals which are made. That had not been our intention, but we shall be the tenth largest oil producer and a very important oil exporter as well.
