128 Australian Government to Beasley
Cablegram 64 CANBERRA, 15 March, 1946
Re our cable No. 122 of March 12th to Dominions Office.  There has been much publicity here suggesting that United Kingdom favours revival of German Synthetic Textile Industry while United States favours cotton. In each case self interest doubtless has important influence.
We desire that Wool Textile Industry receive favourable treatment.
Formerly of great economic importance, the Wool Textile Industry of Germany was substantially sacrificed to synthetics during era of self containment. There is the strongest justification for its rehabilitation.
Glad you take matter up with United Kingdom Government.
International Wool Secretariat fully apprised of position and can efficiently advise you and furnish all necessary statistics.
