HC Deb 08 May 1952 vol 500 c55W
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.
