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

asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what revisions he intends to make to the industrial investment targets in the National Plan, Command Paper No. 2674, in view of the Government's deflationary measures, the Government's cut in public service investment, falling industrial profits, and the increasing cash shortage in industrial companies, which will be further increased by the Selective Employment Tax in the autumn.

Mr. Albu

My right hon. Friend will be consulting his colleagues, industry and the trade unions to consider the changes to the National Plan which may be needed both in the light of experience and the outlook for the economy.
