PURCHASE OF SEA ISLAND COTTON.

The advance price to be paid by the
Government Cotton Ginnery on Sea
Island Seed Cotton purchased on lhe
Co-operative System for the Crop 1952/
5:3 Ih~s bIen fixed as follows:-
White ... ... 20c. per lb.
2nd White ... 8c. per lb.
Stained ... .. 3c. per lb.
It is to be regretted that the price
offered for White seed cotton ihs had
to be reduced from 24c. per Ib. for the
i '.,l."' crop to 20c. per lb. for the
1952/53 crop. This reduction has been
necessary as a guaranteed price is no
longer available from the taw Cotton
Commission in England and our cotton
must now be sold to Spinncis direct.
Spinners will not guarantee a price be-
fore hand and prices are likely to be
lower than previously.
It is hoped that by this reduction in
the advance price it will still be possible
'to pay a bonus comparable with those
paid in recent years.
