HC Deb 09 July 1979 vol 970 cc88-9W
Mr. Jim Marshall

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what plans the Government have for the exhibition on microprocessor technology mounted by his Department under the microprocessor award programme at Congress House on 30 May on the occasion of the TUC consultation conference on employment and technology; and to which trade union audiences it has been shown to date.

Mr. David Mitchell

The Department's exhibition on microprocessor technology has been shown to the following unions up to date—APEX, EMA, STUC, EEPTU, WTUC, ASTMS, POEU, and NALGO. More than 10,000 trade union officers and representatives have seen the exhibition and more than 525 have asked for specific follow-up material. We hope to take the exhibition to the TGWU conference at Scarborough and the TU Congress at Blackpool in September.
