Cotton Industry Act 1959
The United Kingdom Cotton Industry Act 1959 aimed to reorganise the Lancashire cotton industry to prevent its further decline. It provided for grants to replace equipment. The reorganisation process was voluntary in large part to be managed by the Cotton Board (United Kingdom).
Implementation of the Act ran into considerable trouble as demand for cotton collapsed.
