HC Deb 31 July 1962 vol 664 cc54-5W
52. Mr. Mapp

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will require from the Cotton Board a report containinig their reappraisal of the efficiency of the textile industry in terms of home and export requirements.

Mr. D. Price

My right hon. Friend does not consider this is the right time to require such a report since the closing date for re-equipment grant applications under the Cotton Industry Act, 1959, has only just passed. He has, however, invited the Cotton Board to meet him in the early autumn and he will bear the hon. Member's suggestion in mind.
