HC Deb 16 April 1969 vol 781 c245W
33. Mrs. Ewing

asked the Minister of Technology what plans he has to expand the research being conducted by his Department in Scotland.

Mr. Benn

Research in Government establishments is not overall being expanded in the United Kingdom; indeed in certain establishments in England it is being run down in favour of expanded research in industry which I am anxious to promote in Scotland and elsewhere.
