42. Mr. Raymond Fletcher

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if his Department will be represented at the conference on airships and lighter-than-air technology to be conducted by the Flight Transportation Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology under the joint sponsorship of the United States Navy and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, on 9th to 13th September, details of which have been sent to him by the hon. Member for Ilkeston; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Meacher

No, but arrangements are being made to obtain all the papers and a report on the discussion. I am confident that these steps will meet our requirements on this subject.
