HC Deb 26 January 1970 vol 794 c242W
Mr. Hooley

asked the Minister of Technology what was the total United Kingdom production of gas in each of the years 1965 to 1969, inclusive.

Mr. Alan Williams

The following are the figures:

(M.S.L.) and the Scientists Appointment Service (S.A.S.), an organisation set up by the Royal Institute of Chemistry.

In the M.S.L. case the cost to the Department for the three-year term of the contract expiring in March, 1970 is £89,000; for S.A.S. the Ministry contribution for the two-year period up to March, 1970 is about £17,000.

I shall certainly explore my hon. Friend's proposal with the Department of Employment and Productivity.
