Mr. Biffen

asked the Minister of Technology what study he is making of the design standards to be adopted for a new range of British computers to serve civil needs in the early 1970s; and when he expects to announce his policy on this matter

Mr. Cousins

My Department is studying this matter in collaboration with the manufacturers. Complex technical and commercial considerations are involved and I am not yet ready to make a statement.
