asked the Secretary of state for Trade and Industry whether there are plans for further seminars on design management as begun by his Department in April; and if he will make a statement.

The series of design management seminars held earlier this year were organised by the design management group of the Society of Industrial Artists and Designers. My Department supported them with a grant to cover a proportion of their costs. Edited proceedings of the seminars will be published in December.I understand that the design management group is considering another event of this nature which will take place probably in autumn 1986 as part of Industry Year.My Department is planning to hold a commitment conference for 70 company chairmen in January 1986.
