HC Deb 27 June 1957 vol 572 c55W
Lieut.-Colonel Schofield

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will make an announcement about the chairmanship of the Cotton Board.

Sir D. Eccles

Yes, I am glad to be able to say that Lord Rochdale has accepted my invitation to become Chairman of the Board, on a part-time basis, when Sir Raymond Streat retires at the end of September. The Government and the cotton textile industry are fortunate in securing the services of Lord Rochdale for this appointment.
