HC Deb 16 January 1964 vol 687 cc60-1W
Mr. Gresham

Cooke asked the Secretary of State for Air what degree of accuracy was obtained by the thirty-day forecast for December; whether he is satisfied that such forecasts, if reasonably accurate, can be of value to the community; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. H. Fraser

The forecast for December, 1963, was substantially correct. I think that these forecasts serve a useful purpose; but, until we have had more experience of long range forecasting, I do not think I can usefully add anything further to the reply I gave to myhon. Friend on 13th November, 1963.
