HC Deb 24 July 1973 vol 860 c379W
Mr. Bishop

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what matters he has referred to the Council of Engineering Institutions (CEI) in relation to the registration of engineers; what progress has been made; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

I have asked the Council of Engineering Institutions as a matter of urgency to produce a formula which would allow suitably qualified engineers who are not members of existing constituent institutions of CEI to apply for registration by the Engineers Registration Board.

I cannot yet make a statement but I am hopeful that the discussions which I have had with the CEI will result in a satisfactory solution.

Forward to
