§ 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 1640 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?
