§ Mr. Moonman
asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity how many surveys and investigations are at present being made, or have been commissioned, by her Department; what subjects are being covered; and when the reports are expected in the following areas, namely, joint consultation and communication in industry, manpower planning and staff and management development.
§ Mr. Dell
Sixty surveys or investigations, ranging in size from very limited studies to fairly extensive surveys, are currently being conducted or under commission by my Department. This number does not include surveys of an on-going nature, for example the Family Expendi-352W ture Survey; projects sponsored by other Departments or organisations to which my Department's contribution is relatively small; and projects sponsored by Industrial Training Boards.
The subjects covered include prices and incomes, industrial relations, manpower, race relations, youth employment, training and rehabilitation. Reports on projects in the fields of joint consultation and communication and of manpower planning are expected during 1970. Reports on projects relating to staff and management training are expected at intervals between 1970 and late 1972.
