HC Deb 14 February 1975 vol 886 c229W
Mr. Madden

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make it the practice of his administration that any Government Department which buys textiles orders British-made textiles wherever possible in view of the difficulty confronting the British textile industry.

Mr. Joel Barnett

I am of course aware of the current difficulties of the British textile industry, but it would not be in the national interest to depart from the policy of obtaining best value for money.
