HC Deb 15 November 1960 vol 630 cc25-6W
66. Sir D. Robertson

asked the President of the Board of Trade if, with a view to increasing trade and relieving unemployment, he will consult the automobile industry about the potential world market for small commercial and pleasure craft, which could be developed rapidly by a consortium of mass producers.

Mr. N. Macpherson

I am sure that there is an opportunity for industry in this country to meet the demand for small boats in a number of markets. It is for the motor industry to judge whether they could advantageously enter this field.
