§ Mr. Graham Page
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what steps he is taking to promote more efficient management of the building process.
§ Mr. Rippon
My Ministry has been doing a great deal, both formally and informally, to disseminate knowledge of the 157W best management techniques and to encourage their use. It has recently recruited additional staff for this purpose, including engineers, architects, quantity surveyors and builders. This staff, along with officers from other Government building Departments is now attending an intensive course of special training organised by a firm of management consultants.
