The man from the Ministry in Edinburgh confessed yesterday that it was a ‘gritty problem’. He added:” We have not been able to make great progress. I can tell you, though, that we are at the moment stirring it up a bit. We are taking stock of the situation, but since we haven’t yet taken stock, I cannot say, of course, what we have taken stock of.” It was, he said, “an urgent thing that we should want to see done, but on the longer term basis of urgency.”
