HC Deb 21 November 1961 vol 649 c109W
55. Mr. Stonehouse

asked the President of the Board of Trade what measures are being taken by Her Majesty's Government to assist industrial concerns in the West Midlands to use new industrial techniques which will assist higher productivity and Great Britain's export trade.

Mr. Erroll

Industry in the West Midlands can call on Government services in the same way as firms elsewhere. Individual firms can obtain advice about the Government and other services available through the local productivity committees of which there are eight in the West Midlands.
