HC Deb 29 November 1974 vol 882 cc280-1W
Mr. Hoyle

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what steps have been taken to recruit staff for the proposed National Enterprise Board.

Mr. Benn

Board appointments will be made by the Government. But it will be for the National Enterprise Board itself, once established, to recruit its own staff. Meanwhile the Department of Industry is keeping a list of any inquiries about potential employment by the NEB and this will be brought to the attention of the board in due course.
