HC Deb 20 June 1974 vol 875 c242W
Mr. Normanton

asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether he will make an announcement about the decision taken to establish, within the European Economic Community, a new co-ordinating organisation of research organisations, entitled the Federation of European Industrial Co-operative Research Organisations.

Mr. Meacher

I understand that the organisation to which the hon. Member refers, a voluntary association of non-Governmental research organisations in a number of European countries, is still in process of formation. A committee has recently been set up which has the aim of establishing the organisation by 1st January 1975.
