Mr. Wilson:

Is the Minister aware of the statement published in the "Manchester Guardian "recently that the quantity of cotton piece goods exported last year from this country was the lowest since 1947, a year when we had barely recovered from the war?

When are the Government proposing to do something about Lancashire's cotton?
