HC Deb 27 November 1968 vol 774 c112W
67. Mr. Ronald Atkins

asked the Minister of Technology what further measures the Government propose to take to ensure that more scientific research is directed to industrial purposes.

Mr. Fowler

This is a main objective of the Ministry's research policy. We are pursuing it in many ways, among them recasting the programmes of our civil research stations, and in the case of some of our defence research establishments, setting up Industrial Applications Units charged with selling the results of the stations' work to industry.
