HC Deb 04 July 1950 vol 477 c255
73. Mr. A. Edward Davies

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the present position of the proposal to set up a development council for the pottery industry.

Mr. Rhodes

This matter is still under consideration, and I cannot make any statement in the meantime.

Mr. Davies

But this matter has been under consideration for some years; may we expect a decision very soon, or have the Government departed from their previous idea that this would be a very good thing for the pottery industry?

Mr. Rhodes

I cannot add to the statement I have already made.
