§ 42. Mr. A. Edward Davies
asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps are being taken to set up development councils as provided for in the Industrial Organisation Act; what industries are affected; and when the development councils are to commence their work.
§ Mr. H. Wilson
Discussions are at present taking place concerning the establishment of Development Councils in the following industries:—cotton, pottery, furniture, hosiery, wool, jewellery and silverware. I hope before the end of this year to bring before the House for its approval Orders setting up Councils for some of the industries named.
