§ Mr. Cousins
To ask the President of the Board of Trade which sections, teams or project groups have been named for closure at the National Engineering Laboratory since 1 April.
§ Mr. McLoughlin
The only section team or project group which has been named for closure or closed at NEL since 1 April 1993 was the Scottish calibration centre which was closed on 30 September. The Scottish calibration centre was not a core activity of NEL and employed five staff, two of whom were in scientific grades.
