HC Deb 23 March 1971 vol 814 c92W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what changes in policy are proposed at Government research establishments under his Department's control as a result of the appointment of a controller of research.

Mr. Peter Walker

No changes in policy are presently proposed, but the work of the research establishments for which I am responsible is being reviewed as part of the general review of departmental functions and activities, to which reference has already been made by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister.
