HC Deb 19 December 1966 vol 738 cc235-6W
Mr. Milne

asked the Minister of Technology what progress has been made in co-ordinating the effects of shipbuilding firms in the North-East since the appointing of the Shipbuilding Industry Board; and what future co-ordination is in prospect.

these it is contributing to the work of the Regional Economic Planning Councils. In Scotland we are at present conducting for the Scottish Economic Planning Council a techno-economic survey of the foundry industry.

However, I am not yet convinced of the value of providing sketch maps of future technological development.
