HC Deb 16 January 1964 vol 687 cc400-1
35. Miss Quennell

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development how many Orders designating industries by activities have been issued by Her Majesty's Government under the Industrial Organisation and Development Act, 1947.

Mr. D. Price

Four Orders establishing Development Councils have been made under this Act. Two have since been revoked. In addition Orders imposing levies under Section 9 of the Act are in force for four industries.

Miss Quennell

In view of the importance of the definition of industries under this Act and under other legislation relating to the training of young people, can my right hon. Friend say whether that definition is clear, lucid and satisfactory?

Mr. Price

So far as I know, I have had no complaints about that, but if my hon. Friend has any points in mind, perhaps she would like to discuss them with me.
