Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

The Board has approved in principle the introduction of a levy under Section 9 of the Industrial Organisation and Development Act, 1947, to finance scientific research for the hosiery and knitwear industry to be carried out by the Hosiery and Allied Trades Research Association.
