§ 30. Mr. Dalyell
asked the Lord President of the Council and Minister for Science for what reasons the Department of Industrial and Scientific Research has refused the request of the Centre Européen pour Récherche Nucléaire for United Kingdom finance for the construction of storage rings.
§ Mr. Hogg
No such request has been made.
The Council of CERN is this afternoon considering a proposal for a programme of design studies covering both 174W storage rings and a new large accelerator. Subject to certain conditions, which are expected to prove acceptable, the British delegates will support this proposal.
