The following Question stood upon the Order Paper:


—To ask the Minister of Food what additional species of tinned fish it is intended to market in the United Kingdom in addition to those which were generally available on the 1st January.

Mr. Speaker

As the Minister is not present at the moment, I will return to this Question later.

Sir W. Smithers

On a point of Order. May I move that the Serjeant at Arms be instructed to send for the Minister?

An Hon. Member

The Minister is just coming.

The Minister of Food (Mr. Strachey)

Probably tunny and mackerel but I cannot yet say what quantities will be available or when the release will be made.
