HC Deb 20 January 1931 vol 247 c24
42. Major WOOD

asked the Prime Minister whether he can now state when the report of the Committee which is inquiring into the fishing industry may be expected?


The Committee are engaged in the preparation of their report, but I cannot at present say when it is likely to be received by the Government.

Major WOOD

Will the right hon. Gentleman impress upon the Chairman the desirability of having this report soon, so that the recommendations may be considered and, if possible, put into force before the beginning of the next fishing year?


All the pressure that is fair and legitimate has been brought to bear upon the Committee to expedite their report.
