HC Deb 23 April 1968 vol 763 cc13-4W
Mr. Marten

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the rearrangement of departmental responsibilities, he is still concerned directly with the work of the Department of Economic Affairs; if he will continue to take the chair of the National Economic Development Council; and if he will make a statement setting out fully the new departmental responsibilities of all the economic Ministries.

The Prime Minister

As to the first part of the Question I would refer the hon. Member to Answers I gave to Questions on 11th April; as to the second, "Yes"; as to the third, departmental responsibilities are unchanged except for the movement of responsibility for productivity, prices and incomes policy from the Department of Economic Affairs to the Department of Employment and Productivity announced on 5th April.
