§ 40. Mr. Shepherd
asked the Minister of Supply what information he has about the progress which has been made in the standardisation of parts in the motor industry.
§ Mr. G. R. Strauss
My Ministry has been active in impressing on the engineering industry the need for greater standardisation and has met with a ready response. The application of the principles of standardisation is a matter for each industry. Although I have no detailed information of the progress which the motor industry has made, I am satisfied that it is giving close and energetic attention to the problem.
