§ 5. Mr. Willey
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what action he has taken to ensure the closest possible co-operation between the Admiralty Research Department and the British Shipbuilding Research Association.
§ Mr. Willey
Whilst appreciating what the Civil Lord has said, may I ask, in view of the intense competitive conditions which the shipbuilding industry now 1276 faces, if he will accept it as being his duty to promote the closest co-operation between the Admiralty and the industry in order to see that the Admiralty shall afford every possible facility towards bringing about the greatest efficiency?
