Mr ADERMANN - Three conferences on wool are to be held in America and the United Kingdom in May and June. The conference to be held in New York is that of directors of the Wool Bureau Incorporated, and Mr. W. A. Gunn, the chairman of the Australian Wool Bureau, will be representing the International Wool Secretariat thereat. This conference is being held in response to a suggestion by the American Sheep Producers Council, which desires to discuss greater promotion of domestic wool in America. We are very glad to have the Americans interested in the promotion of wool, and consequently Australia is very pleased to be represented at that conference.

The second conference, which is to be held in England, is of the International Wool Publicity and Research Fund, which is the executive body of the International Wool Secretariat. This is the annual meeting of the fund, and Mr. Gunn and two other members of the Australian Wool Bureau will represent Australia there. Then, of course, there is the second International Wool Research Conference, at which Australia will be represented by Dr. F. G. Lennox, of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, and a party of scientists. That conference will be held in England this month.
