HC Deb 30 April 1998 vol 311 c236W
Dr. Gibson

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will take steps to investigate the creation of an Academy of Invention. [39948]

Mr. Battle

I know, in addition to the advice currently available from the Institute of Patentees and Inventors and the Intellectual Property Development Confederation, there are a number of proposals in existence to provide more substantive help to lone inventors.

I have received a number of representations about the creation of an Academy of Inventors and will be discussing it with the leading proposers in the near future.
