asked the Lord President of the Council to what extent the Intelligence Division of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research has been strengthened, as recommended by the Panel on Technical Information Services of the Committee on Industrial Productivity.

The staff of the Intelligence Division has been steadily built up since the war, and now numbers 50. The estimates now before Parliament provide for increasing the staff to 59. It is my intention to strengthen it further as recommended by the Panel on Technical Information Services.
