HC Deb 30 January 1945 vol 407 c1270
39. Mr. John Maclay

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has received from the Scottish Inshore Fishermen's Association protesting against the proposed reduction in prices of white fish during the summer months; and what action he proposes to take.

The Joint Under-Secretary of State for Scotland (Mr. Allan Chapman)

My right hon. Friend has received a copy of the representations regarding white fish prices which have recently been submitted on behalf of inshore fishermen in Scotland, and he is in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Food on the subject. My right hon. Friend will let the hon. Member know the result in due course.

Mr. Maclay

Will the Minister bear in mind the fact that the interests of these Scottish inshore fishermen are very different from those of the trawler fishermen?

Mr. Chapman

Yes, Sir, my right hon. Friend has that very much in mind.
