HC Deb 08 February 1967 vol 740 cc1639-40
30. Mr. Iremonger

asked the President of the Board of Trade what consideration he is giving to the eligibility for investment grants of dual-function vehicles used partly as plant for the manufacture of ready-mixed concrete; and if he will receive a deputation from the British Ready Mixed Concrete Association.

Mr. Darling

These vehicles are constructed for the transport of ready-mixed concrete. They are not, therefore, eligible for investment grants under the Industrial Development Act. I am willing to receive a deputation.

Mr. Iremonger

Is the Minister aware that that willingness will be very well received, and will he be prepared to receive the deputation in the very near future, as the industry is suffering greatly in the meantime?

Mr. Darling

I shall do so as soon as the deputation wishes to see me.
