§ Sir A. Bossom
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works, as representing the Lord President of the Council, why the Building Research Station is now attempting to discourage the adoption of any module, and is intending to design the United Kingdom test buildings in the European Productivity Agency programme without a module, in spite of their agreement with the other European Productivity Agency countries of August last.
§ Mr. Bevins
I am informed that the Building Research Station is not attempting to discourage the adoption of any module, but is reserving its own decision until the experimental work now in progress is complete.
In designing the buildings to which the hon. Member refers, the Building Research Station is applying knowledge of the use of modules and co-ordinated dimensions, without confining itself to the use of any particular module. This is not precluded by the proposed agreement with other European Productivity Agency countries.
