HC Deb 27 March 1968 vol 761 c294W
Mr. Gwynfor Evans

asked the Minister of Technology in view of the potential importance of hovercraft for the Bristol Channel and Irish Sea, what plans he has to transfer the hovercraft section of the National Physical Laboratory from Teddington to Wales.

Mr. Fowler

The location of the Hovercraft Unit is determined by the need to co-ordinate its work with that of industry, N.R.D.C., the Ship Division of the National Physical Laboratory, and the Interservices Hovercraft Unit. There are no plans to transfer it to Wales.
