HC Deb 26 November 1959 vol 614 c54W
63. Mr. Jay

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he proposes to take to improve the efficiency of the British machine-tool industry.

Mr. Maudling

Responsibility for the efficiency of the machine-tool industry rests with the industry itself. However, in a few day's time I intend to discuss the industry's current problems with them.
