HC Deb 30 July 1962 vol 664 c13W
79. Mr. Skeffington

asked the Parliamentary Secretary for Science if he will take action to establish a national institute of industrial microbiology.

Mr. Denzil Freeth

No. This is a question within the terms of reference of D.S.I.R. which considers that research in industrial microbiology is more effectively carried out in universities and as part of the general research programme of laboratories concerned with particular fields of technology.
