HC Deb 28 February 1972 vol 832 cc24-5W
Mr. Robert Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will seek powers to authorise the Survey Control Unit of the Central Statistical Office to veto all statistical surveys not meeting with its approval on grounds of expense, necessity, coverage or design.

Mr. Ridley

The Government are considering the recommendation of the Committee of Inquiry on Small Firms on the rôle of the Survey Control Unit and an early statement will be made.
