§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works (Mr. Harmar Nicholls)
The preparation and supply of standard samples are being continued because they provide a valuable service to industry which needs these materials for the calibration of instruments used in controlling industrial processes.
§ Mr. Nicholls
Quite considerably. Last year, 709 samples were sent to 67 laboratories; 200 samples to foreign countries, 12 to Australia, and the rest to laboratories in this country.
