HC Deb 20 May 1968 vol 765 cc15-6W
52. Mr. Tom Boardman

asked the Minister of Technology whether he will issue a general direction to the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority to employ independent British engineering surveying and design consultants, in view of the importance of this type of work in the United Kingdom to such consultants to enable them to continue and to increase their contribution to United Kingdom invisible exports.

Mr. Fowler

The Authority have already agreed to assist British consulting engineers in ways which are open to them. No general direction from my right hon. Friend is called for.
