"FAIRLY SOUND"

PROSPECTS FOR WOOL

BRITISH VISITOR'S COMMENT

O.C. HAMILTON, this day. A visitor to the Waikato this week was Mr. H. Brough, representative of large wool interests in Yorkshire and a member of the British Wool Federation.

Mr. Brough considered the prospects for New Zealand wool were fairly sound, and said that the surplus would be used rapidly for urgent civilian requirements as soon as the mills in the United Kingdom and the Continent were available. With the exception of those in Germany, the mills were still intact.

The trade was anxious for freedom from control in order to select its requirements direct from the Dominions to cover specialities for both the export and home trade.

In an inspection of freezing works and fellmongeries throughout New Zealand, Mr. Brough found slrpe wools generally improved, especially inferior grades. He believed that the appraisals had been partly responsible for this, although there was still room for considerable improvement, particularly in regards to colour and cleanliness. Mr. Brough emphasised that the market in Britain for New Zealand wool would be dependant on the continuance of New Zealand purchases of British goods.
