HC Deb 06 April 1965 vol 710 cc63-4W
Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will assist patternmakers, who are increasingly exporting and quoting for orders from abroad, by including in future Census of Production Forms 3130, 3300, or a supplementary form, provision for wood patterns, metal patterns and reinforced plastic patterns.

Mr. Darling

I have written to the hon. Member about this suggestion. When the Board consults industry about the information to be collected in the next detailed census of production full consideration will be given to this proposal.
