HC Deb 31 March 1947 vol 435 c1662
62. Lord Willoughby de Eresby

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will make a statement regarding the arrangements he has made for the disposal of the 1947 wool clip; and whether the producer will have the right to send his wool to an authorised merchant of his own choice.

Mr. T. Williams

I expect to make an announcement on this subject in the very near future. The point to which the noble Lord refers in the second part of his Question will be borne in mind, but I cannot promise to satisfy him this year.

Lord Willoughby de Eresby

Could the Minister say whether wool growers' associations will soon be allowed to accept new members?

Mr. Williams

That is perhaps another question.
