HC Deb 22 March 1955 vol 538 c166W
65. Mr. Willey

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministery of Works, as representing the Lord President of the Council, what proposals he has made to the building industry concerning their making a greater contribution to the work of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research Building Research Station.

Mr. Bevins

In their Report for 1953–54, the Advisory Council for Scientific and Industrial Research expressed the view that the building industry ought to make a greater contribution to building research. My noble Friend has no doubt that the industry, which now makes substantial use of the Building Research Station, will take careful note of the views of the Advisory Council.
