HC Deb 03 November 1948 vol 457 c88W
Mr. Prescott

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer for what period it is anticipated that the Anglo-American Council on Productivity will remain in operation; and whether it is proposed that any report, findings or recommendations should be made public.

Sir S. Cripps

The Anglo-American Council on Productivity is an autonomous body set up by employers and trade unionists in British and American industry. It is not in any sense a Government Committee; His Majesty's Government has no responsibility for its composition or its terms of reference and is not represented on it. I have no information as to how long it may decide to continue in operation or whether it will publish any reports.
