HC Deb 15 February 1966 vol 724 cc1099-100
24. Mr. Marples

asked the Minister of Technology when he expects to make a statement on the future of the computer industry.

Mr. Cousins

Good progress is being made with the Government's measures for the British computer industry and to promote the use of computers in Britain. I see no need for a further statement at present.

Mr. Marples

Has the right hon. Gentleman received any report from the Maddock Committee on this?

Mr. Cousins

Yes, but that is not the nature of the Question. If an hon. Member asks an entirely different supplementary question, it seems that he should put it down as the primary Question.
