STATEMENT

Australian Agricultura l Council

Wool i,Iarketi n r

The Australian Agricultural Council was informed

of some of the more important problems of the wool industry

which were under examination by the Advisory Committee which

had been set up by the Australian ''Iool Board under the

chairmanship of Sir William Gunn.

With the exception of one State, the representative

of which felt the need to confer with his Coverin^ient, the

Council agreed that, in vievi of all the circumstances, there

cr,uld be a need for a single marketing authorit y which should

be a statutory body. Co.ncil agreed that the present

marketing system needed to be strengthened and regarded it

as urgent that action be taken along those lines as a step

towards alleviating the difficult financial position of

w .lgrowrwers.
