HC Deb 05 August 1966 vol 733 c210W
Mr. David Price

asked the First Secretary and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what steps he proposes to take to encourage industrial investment by British industry during the current period of economic restriction so that there will be sufficient increase in investment to deal with rising demand when the restrictions are removed.

Mr. Albu

The Government is fully aware of the need to ensure that the level of industrial investment remains sufficient to meet future increases in demand, and is watching the position closely to see whether any future encouragement is required.
