§ 13. Mr. D. GRAHAM (for Mr. LEONARD)
asked the Minister of Agriculture what answer he has made to the representations made to him by the National Federation of Fish Friers, protesting against the lack of suitable fish during June, July, August, and September, due to the orders restricting the landing of fish from certain waters, their inability to meet the rising costs for potatoes, and to continue to supply the needs of their customers, mainly small wage earners?
§ Mr. ELLIOT
I have informed the Federation that I considered that it was desirable to gain further experience of the effect of the Northern Waters Order. The tendency so far this year has been for lower prices for white fish than in 1934, and the general level of port prices is well below the 1929 level.
