§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will make a statement on the report by the National Computing Centre on the impact of microprocessors on British business.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
This report is based on research for an attitude survey commissioned by the Department of Industry and therefore reflects people's perceptions rather than Government policies.
The report is of interest since problems are viewed in terms of implementation, and it is this aspect upon which industry must concentrate if we are to obtain the maximum benefit in terms of industrial performance through the application of microelectronics.
