§ 55. Sir COOPER RAWSON
asked the hon. Member for Ipswich, as chairman of the Kitchen Committee, whether he will procure for the consumption of Members in the dining room at the House of Commons Cornish pilchards preserved in British tins in lieu of those marked as products of the United States of America?
§ Sir JOHN GANZONI
Inquiries have been made of the trade and the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, but it is regretted that no British firm preserving Cornish pilchards in this country has been found.
§ Mr. PETHERICK
Will the hon. Member use his influence with the President of the Board of Trade to obtain his benign approval, as far as protection is concerned, for setting up a canning factory in Cornwall for the curing of fish, if adequate finance is found?
