The Advisory Committee on Natural Resources, the setting up of which I announced on 25th March, in reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Northfield (Mr. Chapman), has met under Sir Dudley Stamp and is considering a number of questions which I have referred to it. These include the provision of information and the development of methodological techniques relating to use of land and other natural resources. A small mixed unit of administrative and professional staff is being set up in my Department, to service the Advisory Committee, to organise the necessary links with academic and other institutions, and to assist me in participating in national and regional planning.
