§ 53. Sir W. Darling
asked the Minister of Food what amount of publicity has been spent on brislings and herrings, respectively, in the last three months or convenient comparable period.
§ The Minister of Food (Mr. Maurice Webb)
During the three months ended on 11th August, we spent approximately £10,000 on advertising brislings. I cannot say what was spent on publicity for herrings, since this is the responsibility of 2045 the industry. My Department gives publicity to herrings as part of its general advice on food, but the cost could not be estimated without a special inquiry.
§ Sir W. Darling
Am I right in believing that brislings are entirely an imported commodity and that herrings are a British commodity? If so, should not the preference be the other way?
