HC Deb 08 April 1968 vol 762 c172W
Mr. van Straubenzee

asked the Minister of Social Security whether she will set up an intelligence unit within her Department to meet the need for information not at present available.

Mrs. Hart

There is already within my Ministry a Research and Statistics Department which has recently been reorganised, and is being expanded. The Department will work closely with my economic adviser whom I have recently appointed.
