§ 16. Sir G. Sinclair
asked the Minister of Power how many times the nationalised coal and electricity industries, respectively, have made use of management consultants over the last five years.
§ Mr. Gunter
I understand that both industries have made considerable use of consultants. I am asking the chairmen to write to the hon. Gentleman.
§ Sir G. Sinclair
While thanking the right hon. Gentleman for that reply, may I ask him to consider turning over to consultants all the efficiency audits which are now carried out entirely by the Prices and Incomes Board?
