§ Mr. Moonman
asked the Minister of Transport if she will state the numbers and levels of staff in her Department engaged on research in connection with the establishment of the European Technological Community; and if she will detail the nature and scale of such research.
§ Mr. Swingler
The Department is participating in the interdepartmental preparation and development of the Government's proposals in relation to European technological co-operation. Officials at various levels are concerned, but their participation in this work amounts to only a part, which it would not be practicable to quantify, of their departmental duties.
