HC Deb 02 February 1967 vol 740 c150W
Mr. Marten

asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what discussions he has held with the National Economic Development Council about the effectiveness of planning for growth; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Shore

My right hon. Friend had a useful discussion with the Council yesterday on the planning operation which he announced to the House on 10th November, and he will be consulting it further. The Council had already strongly reaffirmed its belief in the continued value of planning.
