HC Deb 09 July 1964 vol 698 cc708-9

7.48 p.m.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade (Mr. David Price)

I beg to move, That the Furniture Industry Development Council (Amendment No. 2) Order, 1964, a draft of which was laid before this House on 23rd June, be approved. As this Order has the approval of the two major bodies in this industry, namely, the British Furniture Manufacturers' Federated Associations, and the National Federation of Furniture Trade Unions, as its purpose is to increase the levy ceiling from £30,000 to £75,000, and as the reason for this is primarily to provide more money for research in the furniture industry, I hope that the House will approve the Order without my going into further detail, although I would be happy to do so.

Question put and agreed to.
