Does the Minister understand that in north-east Wales we are very concerned and rather suspicious at the delay in making further statements on the project at Point of Ayr? Does he understand that, with so much mass unemployment in north-east Wales, if the project were to go ahead at Point of Ayr the construction industry as well as the mining industry would have a major boost? Does the Minister accept that if he were to make a statement in the middle of the election campaign, rather than to this House, it would be taken badly by those concerned?
