Co-operation in the Cotton Industry The Joint Committee of Cotton

Trade Organizations has at last produced a scheme for more efficient production and marketing. A new body is to be created called the British Cotton Trade Textile Association. It will be a company of limited liability, though it is proposed that the word " limited " should not be used if leave can be obtained to dispense with it. In any case the Association will not itself engage in trade. It will be a co-ordinating and investigating body representing the whole of the cotton trade. Lancashire is to be congratulated. We trust that this wise action is the beginning of a better era for the industry.
