Mr McEWEN - I do not propose that the import licensing branch of the Department of Trade shall become a price control authority, but I do recognize that, due to the severity of the limitation of exports last year, certain textile manufacturers could not be granted licences to import and, therefore, were obliged to buy from those who had licences. In the relaxations which have been announced, the Government has recognized that that is one of a variety of anomalous situations that do exist. Within the present relaxations, some provision is made to deal with that situation.

Suggest corrections
