HC Deb 15 March 1917 vol 91 c1304W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office who are the persons who constitute the Central Advisory Committee on Wool Purchase; and what are their several occupations, by whom they were elected, and what their particular qualifications are for advising the Government?


The Central Advisory Committee on Wool Purchase for England and Wales has been appointed by the Army Council after consultation with the Hoard of Agriculture, the British Wool Buyers' Association, the Advisory Committees for Wales and the Board of Trade. It is composed of leading representatives of the farmers, of the wool buyers, and of the manufacturers. I shall be glad to supply the hon. Member with a list of the members and the branches of the trade or organisations they represent.
