HC Deb 25 July 1963 vol 681 c213W
43. Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will recommend the appointment of a Royal Commission to arrange a suitable form of investigation into the economic potentialities of Great Britain, and on how they can be harnessed to secure the maximum results and bring about a higher national income and increase in exports.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

No. The National Economic Development Council is already engaged on a task very similar to that which the hon. Gentleman has in mind.
