HC Deb 29 March 1956 vol 550 c250W
Mr. Albu

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works, as representing the Lord President of the Council, if he will publish the Report of the Committee which has been examining the organisation of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research.

Mr. Bevins

My noble Friend is arranging for the Committee's interim Report, the recommendations of which form the basis of the main provisions of the recently published Department of Scientific and Industrial Research Bill, to be published as a White Paper. He does not propose to publish the Committee's final Report, much of which is of a confidential character.
