§ 31. Mr. Thornton
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is satisfied that the methods of physically scrapping machinery under the Cotton Industry Act, 1959, are effective; and what checks he has to ensure that the broken machinery is not subsequently repaired and put back into operation.
§ Mr. J. Rodgers
Yes, Sir. It is the Cotton Board's responsibility to ensure that the machinery is rendered permanently unfit for further use and the Board informs me that this requirement is being strictly enforced.
