§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what progress chasing he has done as a result of the recommendations of the Brighton Conference 1969 on oceanography at which his Department was represented.
§ Dr. David Owen
Oceanology International 69 at Brighton included a conference sponsored by the Society for Underwater Technology consisting of a comprehensive programme of papers, discussions and technical sessions. Although some delegates included suggestions for possible future actions in their papers, the conference made no formal recommendations, nor was this its purpose.
