§ 58. Lady Tweedsmuir
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will make a statement as to his intentions for a proposed development council for the clothing industry.
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade (Mr. John Edwards)
My right hon. Friend cannot make a statement until he has considered the comments on the proposals for a Clothing Development Council which he published in January.
§ Lady Tweedsmuir
Can the hon. Gentleman ensure that the development council order will not be made while large and important sections of the industry are still opposed to this proposal?
