HC Deb 20 June 1969 vol 785 c177W
Mr. Bottomley

asked the Minister of Technology if he will take steps to ensure that the manufacture and development of carbon fibres for Imperial Chemical Industries using National Research Development Council patents is placed on Teesside.

Mr. Benn

I cannot anticipate the outcome of the discussions between I.C.I. and N.R.D.C. announced in the Press on 12th June, but I can assure my right hon. Friend that if a decision is made to establish a new large scale plant regional requirements will not be overlooked.
