asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will list the prices received by growers of different classes of wool from the current clip and show how they compare with the approximate prices received by growers of the same classes of wool in 1938.

The schedule of prices for the 1950 wool clip was published on 16th May last, and I am sending a copy to the hon. Member. Comparable figures for the same classes of wool in 1938 are not available, but such information as I have indicates that in general the current prices to growers are some 350 to 400 per cent. above the 1938 level.
