asked the Prime Minister what consideration she has given to the memorandum submitted to her by the Confederation of British Wool Textiles; and if she will make a statement amplifying her views on the subject matter therein.

The Government have given very serious consideration to the problems of the wool textile industry. I fully understand these problems, and have great sympathy with the wool tex- tile industry in its present difficulties. However, I do not believe that the industry's proposals for more extensive controls on imports would help solve our economic difficulties.
