§ 68. Mr. D. Brook
asked the Minister of Agriculture what amount included in the £39 million authorised by the new farm price review will be necessary to maintain the price guarantee to farmers of 6s. 0½d. per lb. for the home wool clip.
§ Sir T. Dugdale
The guaranteed price of wool for 1952–53, which was determined as part of the recent price award, is 4s. 6d. per lb. and not 6s. 0½d. per lb. No part of the £39 million is attributable to maintaining the price of wool.
