HC Deb 16 February 1970 vol 796 cc12-3W
83. Mr. Albu

asked the Minister of Technology if he intends to finance research into pressure vessels partly from industrial contributions; and what machinery he proposes to establish for the purpose.

Dr. Ernest A. Davies

Much research of value to manufacturers of pressure vessels is already carried out, partly at their expense. The extent to which there is a need for more research as distinct from better co-ordination of current resources, will emerge if agreement can be reached on the form of a pressure vessel research committee.
