§ 49. Mr. Petherick
asked the Minister of Agriculture what action, similar to the Herring Industry Bill, he proposes to take to aid the pilchard fishing industry after the war.
The importance of the pilchard fishing industry will not be overlooked in connection with the rehabilitation of inshore fisheries, which is now receiving my close attention.
§ Mr. Petherick
Can my right hon. Friend say whether he has anything specific in his mind in relation to the pilchard industry and its future?
