The wool industry is lobbying government officials to avoid a repeat of the Ministry of Education choosing synthetic floor coverings over wool. And the ministry has promised to look at using wool in school areas other than classrooms. News that the ministry chose a United States-based synthetic manufacturer to supply 300,000 sq metres of floor coverings in 800 classrooms has galvanised the domestic wool industry, which has had members meeting with government officials to push the use of wool. Its decision to go with synthetics provoked an uproar and Ministry of Education’s head of property Sam Fowler, says further discussions are planned with wool sector representatives. He says they have clarified what their flooring standards are and discussed the challenges and benefits of wool flooring.
