HC Deb 19 January 1967 vol 739 cc116-7W
83. Mr. Christopher Price

asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what are the reasons for the delay in setting up an Economic Development Council for the motor manufacturing industry.

Mr. Harold Lever

The main problem is to devise a suitable working relationship between an Economic Development Committee and the existing joint consultative body, the National Advisory Council for the Motor Manufacturing Industry. This has proved difficult and discussions are still proceeding.
