I do not think that my hon. Friend does any service to the House by making insinuations, couched in vague terms, against people who are in no position to reply. It is and always has been my intention that the report should be published. I made that clear in my statement last October—my hon. Friend was present at the time—and it will be published, as I said, subject to any editing to protect the interests of developing countries or information given on a strictly confidential basis. That was the intention of my predecessor, my right hon. Friend the Member for Lanark (Mrs. Hart), as she made clear, and I have repeated it on more than one occasion as my intention, too.
