§ 27. Sir GEORGE TOULMIN
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware of the anxiety in Lancashire as to the supply of raw cotton; whether he will consider immediate steps further to encourage the growth of improved qualities of cotton within our own Colonies; and further assist organisations engaged in this work of national importance?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Bonar Law)
Yes, Sir, I am aware of the views which have been expressed on this subject, and I shall be glad to give careful consideration to any proposals that may be put before me for the further development of the cotton growing industry in the Colonies.
