HC Deb 04 December 1959 vol 614 c167W
Mr. D. Price

asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty how many oceanographers from Great Britain participated in the International Congress on Oceanography, which met in New York from 31st August to 11th September; and what recommendations it produced.

Sir E. Boyle

I have been asked to reply.

Twenty-five persons from Government Departments and from scientific institutions in the United Kingdom which receive grants from the Exchequer are known to have attended this Congress. I understand that its primary purpose was the exchange of information and that no recommendations were made.
