HC Deb 01 December 1966 vol 737 c123W
7. Mr. David Howell

asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs if he will now give guidance to business on the effects of the Government's long-term investment programmes, in the light of his decision not to publish a revised National Plan this year.

Mr. M. Stewart

If the hon. Member refers to forecasts of the investment required to meet planning objectives, this must await the result of the planning operation to which I referred on 10th November. But we have stressed the importance for the future of maintaining a high level of investment.
