HC Deb 23 March 1967 vol 743 c345W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what further evidence of support for his proposal to set up the Construction Industry Research and Information Association since 7th February at which date only £16,000 had been promised by 128 members of the National Federation of Building Trades Engineers and since when the Royal Institute of British Architects have withdrawn their support for the proposal.

Mr. Prentice

The financial support initially promised is considerably greater than the figures quoted by my hon. Friend.

If the C.I.R.I.A. evolves from C.E.R.A. in the way I hope, the Government will give this new organisation its full support.
