HC Deb 21 November 1961 vol 649 c110W
57. Mr. Albu

asked the Parliamentary Secretary for Science what steps he has taken to set up the proposed new shipbuilding research association.

Mr. Denzil Freeth

The shipbuilding and marine engineering industries have set up an executive committee, with the encouragement of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, to bring about the formation of a new association for ship research. My noble Friend is pleased to learn that the proposals agreed within the industries will be announced tomorrow. Discussions with D.S.I.R. on constitutional matters are already well advanced, and those on details of the final financial arrangements will follow later.
