HC Deb 18 December 1962 vol 669 cc161-2W
58. Mr. Denis Howell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what proposals he has for utilising vacant industrial capacity in this country for the purpose of assisting underdeveloped territories throughout the Commonwealth.

Mr. Maudling

May I refer the hon. Member to my statement on this subject during yesterday's debate. As I said then, I should be glad to see us go a little further towards satisfying some of the many claims under consideration, if that could be done by matching them with unused capacity. This statement was certainly meant to embrace the Commonwealth, who receive the larger part of our aid.
