The material that we hold includes commercially sensitive material and material that is relevant to our negotiating position. The House has previously voted not to release information that would be prejudicial to our negotiating position. If we were to give the right hon.

It is our intention to satisfy the motion by providing to him information that is relevant, timely and correct.
