34. Sir J. Rodgers

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will make a statement on the steps that have been taken to rationalise the statistical demands made on British industry by Government Departments and other bodies such as industrial training boards.

Mr. Dell

The Government's plans for the development of industrial statistics were described in Statistical News for May, 1968. They include greater control and co-ordination by the Central Statistical Office through,inter alia, a survey control unit and the creation in the Board of Trade of the Business Statistics Office to serve all Departments.
