HC Deb 07 December 1973 vol 865 cc503-4W
Mr. Rost

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will now direct a cut-back in television trans- of increasing the spread of technology in the workshop, especially taking into account the needs of the smaller firms.

Mr. Anthony Grant

This question is kept under continuous review in the Department. Problems of technology transfer vary from industry to industry, and studies are put in hand as problems are identified in specific sectors. In addition, the small firms information centres recently set up throughout the country provide guidance and help firms make contact with sources of technical advice in the Department's industrial research establishments and elsewhere.
