HC Deb 20 July 1944 vol 402 c351
59. Mr. Liddall

asked the Minister of Food if he is aware that undersized fish landed at Bangor are being sold to hawkers and other persons not licensed to sell fish; if he is satisfied that the levy is being paid on all fish sold to licensed fishmongers in Bangor; and, in view of the Order that all surplus fish must be sent to London, why supplies of surplus fish are being sent to Liverpool.

Mr. Mabane

Complaints have been received that immature fish is being sold at Bangor to hawkers and unlicensed traders and I am aware that fish has recently been sent from Bangor to Liverpool in apparent contravention of the transport directions. These matters are being investigated, but from the records that are available to my Department I am satisfied that there is no significant avoidance of levy by licensed fishmongers at Bangor.
