The Privy Council has appointed a committee of twelve to inquire into the decay of the wool trade. They find that the export of wool, wool-fells, year, fuller's earth, and 'woad-ashes' assist foreign makers of cloth. Prohibits the exportation of any of these on pain of Star Chamber and such other, &c. No officer is to allow the exportation of wool, nor to certify that it is landed unless he sees the actual quantity named in the 'cocket' landed. All licences for export of wool are revoked. Blacks and Mournings at Funerals to be made of English woollen cloth. No person to use logwood or 'blockwood' in dyeing. The Wardens of the Dyers to make search. All officers to assist in carrying out this Proclamation. A Commission will be appointed for the furtherance of trade." -- Steele.
