HC Deb 11 June 1942 vol 380 c1247
57. Mr. Liddall

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that a system of netting salmon, applied to the whole coastline of Great Britain, would provide an additional food supply of fresh and tinned salmon, more than is needed for home consumption; and will he submit a Government controlled salmon-netting scheme to a Committee, so as to avoid the production of a plan at the last moment and in a hurry?

Mr. Hudson

My information is that— at an optimistic estimate—the total year's supply of salmon that could be secured from the waters of Great Britain would not justify the organisation and gear required.

Sir H. Williams

Is my right hon. Friend aware that since the price of salmon was fixed the salmon have all gone on strike?
