HC Deb 16 October 1969 vol 788 c124W
47. Mr. Biffen

asked the Minister of Technology if he will publish a memorandum setting out the extent to which his Department answer for the activities of the Industrial Reorganisation Corporation.

Mr. Varley

My right hon. Friend is assuming the responsibilities for the I.R.C. which were formerly undertaken by the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs. These are as set out in the I.R.C. Act, 1966, and since there is no change we see no need to publish a memorandum.
