HC Deb 18 July 1967 vol 750 c235W
Q18. Mr. Philip Noel-Baker

asked the Prime Minister what proposals the Central Committee of Scientific Advisers have made for the transference of resources from military research for civil industry and other non-military purposes.

The Prime Minister

The advice given by the Central Advisory Council for Science and Technology to the Government is confidential, but I can assure my right hon. Friend that they are fully aware of the importance of determining the scope for transferring resources from defence to civil research and development in the course of their continuing review of our overall national strategy for science and technology.
