§ 21. Sir J. Duncan
asked the Postmaster-General whether he will include in the specifications for articles used by his Department which are made of flax, such as mail bags, a condition that they should be made of Scottish spun flax.
§ Mr. Marples
No. The Post Office could not discriminate in favour of Scottish spun flax, to the detriment of the flax spinning industry in other parts of the United Kingdom.
