HC Deb 31 March 1980 vol 982 cc33-4W
Sir Timothy Kitson

asked the Secretary of State for Industry how long it is taking to process applications relating to microprocessor application projects; and what can be done to speed up the grant of approval for registered Mapcon consultants.

Mr. David Mitchell

Time taken to process microprocessor application projects varies. Some take four weeks; when the financial and technical appraisals are more complex, the timescale can lengthen. Where a MAPCON consultant has a client in view, his application for registration should not exceed six weeks. If my hon. Friend has a particular case in mind, perhaps he would write to me with the details.
