HC Deb 22 February 1968 vol 759 cc179-80W
Q10. Mr. J. H. Osborn

asked the Prime Minister what directions he has given to Ministers about Government finance to establish new scientifically-based industries; and what will be the total element of subsidy in the Government proposals to establish and operate one or more aluminium smelters.

The Prime Minister

None, but the hon. Member will know of the steps the Government have taken and are taking to encourage the development of industry.

As to the smelter projects I would refer him to the Answer I gave to other Questions on this subject earlier this afternoon.
