HC Deb 21 December 1967 vol 756 c470W
Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Minister of Overseas Development if he will make a statement on the new export campaign, designed to make available to underdeveloped countries cheap and unsophisticated equipment and tools.

Mr. Oram:

I think that my hon. Friend is referring to "Tools for Progress", published as a guide to equipment and materials for small scale development. This was produced by a private organisation called the Intermediate Technology Development Group as one of their activities for the promotion of low-cost technology. It seems to me to be a most useful piece of work and I hope that it will have a wide circulation in the developing countries.
