HC Deb 23 February 1922 vol 150 cc2141-2W

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the stock of wool held at present by the Government; and what is the amount sold it 1921?


I have been asked to answer this question. The stocks of wool owned by the Government and now in the hands of the British Australian Wool Realisation Association for sale amount to 1,226,578 bales. The Government-owned wool sold in 1921 amounted to 471,334 bales. The above figures are exclusive of the Australian-owned wool under the control of the Association.
