HC Deb 05 December 1963 vol 685 c203W
33. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development whether he will employ less expensive, and more practical, methods for obtaining knowledge of travellers' habits than the present employment of young women who question samples of travellers on steamers and at airports.

Mr. Heath

No satisfactory alternative means are available for securing this valuable information about the expenditure of a small proportion of travellers to and from this country.
