National Industrial Organisation... National Industrial Organisation, 1940- 
Minutes, 1964-1965; some subject files, 1964-1966.
In 1963 the British Employers' Confederation, the Federation of British Industries and the National Association of British Manufacturers together appointed Sir Sam Brown and Sir Henry Benson as commissioners to propose a constitution for a single new body, at this stage referred to simply as the National Industrial Organisation. The Commissioners' Report on the formation of a national industrial organisation appeared in April 1964 and, following discussion by the constituents, the new body, under the name the Confederation of British Industry, came into existence in July 1965.
