§ 107. Mr. Hazell
asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what will be the role of the regional boards for industry and their district advisory committees in the regional planning boards and councils he is to set up.
I envisage that in due course the Economic Planning Councils will take over the responsibilities at present carried by the Regional Boards for Industry. Arrangements have been made to discuss with the T.U.C. and the employers' organisations the best means of ensuring that the new machinery, when it is set up, profits from the valuable experience built up by the Boards, and their District Advisory Committees, over a period of years.
