§ 2.58 p.m.
§ [The Question was as follows:
§ To ask Her Majesty's Government where in Wales they intend that the new steel strip mills estimated to cost £200 million shall be erected.]
§ THE MINISTER OF POWER (LORD MILLS)
My Lords, I regret that I am not yet in a position to make any statement on the subject of an additional strip mill.
§ LORD OGMORE
My Lords, may I ask the noble Lord whether he expects to be in a position to do so in the near future, as this matter has now been going on for two years without a decision? Also, would he be good enough to let me know when he is in a position to do so, so that I may put down another Question?
§ LORD MILLS
My Lords, to answer the second part of the question first, I will gladly let my noble friend know when I am in a position to make any statement. I would rather not try to forecast when that will be.
