§ 50. Mr. H. GIBSON
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the increasing gravity of the situation in the cotton industry, he can hold out any hope of an early Report of the inquiry at present proceeding and prompt action following upon it?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
As I stated on Tuesday last in reply to a similar question by the hon. and gallant Member for Clitheroe, the Cotton Inquiry is being pushed on as expeditiously as possible.
§ Mr. GIBSON
Is the Prime Minister aware that the position of the cotton 240 industry in Lancashire is as bad, if not worse, than the condition of the coal industry?
