asked the Secretary of State for Industry what progress has been made towards the acquisition of a headquarters building for the National Enterprise Board; and, in view of the sav- ings which would result, whether he will make it his policy to see that it is sited out of London.
Offices have already been leased for the board in Grosvenor Gardens, London, S.W.I.
asked the Secretary of State for Industry how many areas of profitable industry he expects the National Enterprise Board to extend public ownership into in its first year of operation.
This is a matter that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State will be discussing with the NEB Organising Committee before the board comes into operation.
