§ Mr. Moonman
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will make available a preliminary report on the Aid to Productivity campaign which took place in Manchester earlier this year before sponsoring two similar schemes to aid the small firm in Glasgow and Bristol; what was the cost of the Manchester scheme; and what are the budgets for the proposed schemes in Glasgow and Bristol.
§ Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu
The Manchester scheme is different in character from the pilot schemes in Glasgow and Bristol about which my right hon. Friend hopes to make an announcement next month. The Manchester scheme, although advertised in January, was not begun until late April and no results or costings are likely to be available until the autumn.
