§ 41. Mr. Warbey
asked the Minister of Power what decision he has taken following the meeting of the Advisory Council on Research and Development, regarding the provision of financial and technical assistance through Government agencies for research and development work on the magnetoplasmadynamic generation of electricity.
§ Mr. Erroll
None. Such assistance is not the concern of my Advisory Council on Research and Development. With advice from the Council, I have however agreed to the general programme of research which includes work in this field by the Central Electricity Generating Board. The Department of Scientific and Industrial Research and the U.K.A.E.A. are considering what fur-there research should be supported in this field.
