HC Deb 31 March 1920 vol 127 c1259W
Captain BAGLEY

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions the cost to the taxpayer resulting from the control of wool?


Up to date the cost to the taxpayer has been nil. It is not anticipated that any charge will fall on public funds. The hon. and gallant Member may be interested to learn that the administrative expenses on wool, which are a charge against profits, amount to less than 1 per cent. on sales.
