§ Mr. Ian Lloyd
asked the Minister of Technology what reappraisal he has made of his policy as a result of the observations of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development report on Science Policy in the United States of America on the extent of spin-off or the 10W indirect consequences of Government sponsored research and development.
§ Mr. Benn
The report is being carefully studied. In so far as it is concerned with the rapid application of science to production, the Industrial Expansion Bill will be a useful new instrument available to my Department and the Government generally.
