HC Deb 01 July 1941 vol 372 cc1211-2
45. Captain Plugge

asked the Lord President of the Council whether he is aware that both the Scientific Advisory Committee and the Engineering Advisory Committee are not in every case able to obtain immediately essential technical advice, or to select persons most able to give such advice, particularly with regard to matters affecting chemistry and physics; and whether, in these circumstances, he can arrange for the closer association with these bodies of representatives of chemistry and physics with experience of industry, or to provide them with liaison officers who will be competent to supply the necessary contacts with the minimum of delay?

The Lord President of the Council (Sir John Anderson)

No, Sir. I am assured that neither of the Committees mentioned has met with any difficulty in obtaining the technical advice it requires.
