asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will meet a deputation from the West Yorkshire metropolitan council to discuss the financial and social consequences so far as wool scouring is concerned; and if he will make a statement.

I have made it clear to the local authorities that I do not see any virtue in the proposal that the wool scouring industry should be relocated on the coast. Therefore, I do not see the need for such a meeting but if there is still local concern about this I shall certainly reconsider whether a meeting should be held.
