§ 29. Mr. Osborne
asked the Secretary for Overseas Trade, as representing the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, what support he has given to the Wool Committee of the International Materials 51W Conference for the banning of further wool stockpiling; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. H. Strauss
I have been asked to reply. No proposal to ban further stockpiling has been put forward by the Wool Committee of the International Materials Conference. No question of support by Her Majesty's Government therefore arises. Our own wool stockpiling programme is proceeding according to plan.
