HC Deb 03 March 1966 vol 725 cc348-9W
Mr. Duffy

asked the President of the Board of Trade what was the fixed capital expenditure in the wool textile industry in 1965; and how this figure compares with 1964.

Mr. Jay

The fixed capital expenditure of the wool textile industry in 1965 is provisionally estimated at about £17 million; the corresponding estimate for 1964 is £19 million. These estimates are subject to revision in the light of the results of the censuses of production.
