asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works, as representing the Lord President of the Council, to what extent Her Majesty's Government intend to allow the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research to expand their existing plans for research.
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 8th December to my hon. Friend the Member for St. Marylebone (Sir W. Wakefield)and to the hon. Member for Newton (Mr. Lee).
Does the hon. Gentleman agree that every possible encouragement should be given to the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research?
Yes, Sir, and on the basis of the new programme there will be a considerable expansion during the next five years.
Can the hon. Gentleman say whether the Department is satisfied with the Minister's recent announcement?
Yes, Sir. I understand so.
