HC Deb 01 May 1940 vol 360 c717
62. Mr. T. Henderson

asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware that the failure to pay for stocks of wool produced by farmers in the Western Highlands of Scotland, and requisitioned by the Government, is causing hardship to the farmers referred to; and is he prepared to have the agreed price paid to them at once?

Mr. Burgin

This wool is being paid for after it is brought in, as quickly as it can be appraised. If any farmer is experiencing undue delay in obtaining payment, he should report the facts to the British Wool Section, Wool Control, Bradford.
