§ Mr. Gale
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, in view of the breakdown of negotiations relating to independent television production quotas, between the independent television companies and independent producers, he will review the position in the light of American experience; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Renton
We welcome the steps taken by the IBA to explore with the parties to the negotiations the scope for their resumption. We are, however, keeping the position under close review.
