HC Deb 14 December 1937 vol 330 c959
11. Colonel Sir Charles MacAndrew

asked the President of the Board of Trade how much oil made from herrings was imported in the years 1934, 1935, and 1936; and from what sources did it come?

The President of the Board of Trade (Mr. Oliver Stanley)

I regret that the information asked for by my hon. and gallant Friend is not available, as imports of oil made from herrings are not separately recorded in the trade returns of the United Kingdom.
