HC Deb 26 May 1966 vol 729 c145W
Mr. Stratton Mills

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will introduce legislation to enable him to set up a body with powers similar to those of the Industrial and Commercial Finance Corporation; and if he will empower this body to extend its activities to Northern Ireland.

Mr. MacDermot

I see no need to duplicate the Industrial and Commercial Finance Corporation in this country; the creation of such a body specifically for Northern Ireland would be a matter for the Government of that country.
