asked the President of the Board of Trade when he anticipates that the output of woollen cloth will be sufficient to meet home demands, in addition to fulfilling export orders.

Output of woollen, as distinct from worsted, cloth is now sufficient in volume to meet home and export demands. Worsted production is limited by lack of labour but the gap between output and demand is diminishing. It is not possible to say when output of all type of materials will be sufficient to meet all demands.
