HC Deb 29 April 1968 vol 763 c108W
54. Sir H. Legge-Bourke

asked the Minister of Technology what particular projects under the sponsorship of his Department and research stations he has decided to curtail or cancel, in the light of the cuts in Government expenditure imposed by devaluation and the gold crisis, showing the amount of savings anticipated in each case, and the effect upon qualified scientists and engineers concerned.

Mr. Benn

Cuts in project expenditure sponsored by my Department have been achieved by curtailing new expenditures rather than curtailing or cancelling projects already in progress.
