§ Captain BAGLEY
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions the cost to the taxpayer resulting from the control of wool?
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
Up to date the cost to the taxpayer has been nil. It is not anticipated that any charge will fall on public funds. The hon. and gallant Member may be interested to learn that the administrative expenses on wool, which are a charge against profits, amount to less than 1 per cent. on sales.
