HC Deb 09 August 1966 vol 733 c322W
Mr. Cronin

asked the Minister of Technology what is his policy for increasing the use of automatic process control systems in industry.

Mr. Benn

My policy is to encourage the widest practicable use of these systems in industry, and my Department and the National Research Development Corporation is supporting, on an increasing scale, projects designed to meet this end. In addition, the Research Stations disseminate information to this end. For example, Warran Spring Laboratory is demonstrating to the chemical engineering industry new automatic process control methods by computer.
