§ 81. Mr. A. Edward Davies
asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps are being taken to implement the recommendations of the Working Party Report on the Pottery Industry; and when it is proposed to set up a Development Council as provided for under the Industrial Organisation Act, 1947.50W
§ Mr. Belcher
Good progress has been made towards implementing the majority of the thirty detailed recommendations. It would be impracticable within the scope of a Parliamentary Answer to describe the steps taken in each case, but I shall be glad to tell my hon. Friend the action taken upon any particular recommendations he may have in mind. Discussions concerning the establishment of a Development Council are taking place with both sides of the industry and the first draft of the necessary statutory Order is being sent to them for comment.
