Joint Clothing Council

Part of Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 2nd November 1954.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. Wilson:

Is not this a scandalous piece of sabotage of the public interest by the parties concerned, and does not the hon. and learned Gentleman recall that the President of the Board of Trade, when commending the dissolution Order relating to the Clothing Industry Development Council in December, 1952, gave us as one of the main reasons that it was to be replaced by this voluntary council. Since the voluntary council has been sabotaged, will the hon. and learned Gentleman revive the proposal for a development council?
