HC Deb 06 July 1953 vol 517 c70W
Mr. Brooman-White

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has yet completed his consultations with his colleagues about the Cairncross Report; and with what result.

Mr. J. Stuart

Yes. My right hon. Friends the President of the Board of Trade, the Minister of Labour and I have considered the Report very carefully. We have come to the conclusion that the Government's Distribution of Industry policy should not be changed meantime on the lines recommended in the Report, and I have written in this sense to Lord Bilsland.
