HC Deb 10 December 1945 vol 417 c163W
Colonel Stoddart-Scott

asked the President of the Board of Trade why Messrs. Samuel Cockroft and Company, Limited, Barkerend Mills, Bradford, were refused by the Wool Control permission to export 25,000 1b. of worsted yarn to an old customer in Cleveland, Ohio, when this firm have the plant, labour and raw material and this country needs the dollars.

Sir S. Cripps

The application in question was made after the firm had disposed of the whole of its share of a recent allocation of wool yarn. When a further allocation of yarn for export is possible the firm will participate in it.
