HC Deb 22 March 1983 vol 39 cc371-2W
Mr. Cryer

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will provide funds for an advisory service to provide practical guidance in solving production problems for the spring manufacturing industry rather than funds solely for long-term research.

Mr. MacGregor

Such guidance for the spring manufacturing industry as well as for other sectors of manufacturing industry is already available from the Department of Industry funded manufacturing advisory service and for small companies under the technical inquiry service. So far 31 companies in spring manufacturing have received guidance.
