Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Minister of Supply how often the advisory committee appointed to deal with jigs and gauges in December last had met prior to the end of June last; and if they have met since that date?

Mr. Harold Macmillan

The main Advisory Committee on Jigs, Tools and Gauges met on two occasions prior to the end of June and has met once since. A sub-committee has met on eight occasions. At the meeting on 1st August it was decided to divide the committee into two advisory panels, one on gauges and measuring instruments and the other on jigs, fixtures and press tools. The members of these panels have been appointed and will meet whenever necessary.
