HC Deb 05 June 1951 vol 488 c102W
79. Lady Tweedsmuir

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the continuing rise in price of sisal twine, larger quantities can be imported from Empire countries in the sterling area.

Mr. Bottomley

So far as I am aware, there are no supplies of sisal twine available from Empire countries or within the sterling area.
