HC Deb 12 February 1913 vol 48 cc956-7

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether he is aware that there is no representative of the port of Grimsby on the Departmental Committee that has been appointed to inquire into the condition of the inshore fisheries, although Grimsby is the largest fishery port in Great Britain and specially concerned in the proper preservation of those fisheries; and whether he will appoint some person of special knowledge from that port to serve on the Committee?


No members of the Committee in question have been appointed to represent particular ports interested in the fishing industry, but I have no doubt that the Committee will be glad to receive evidence from the port of Grimsby if it is offered to them.
