HC Deb 28 November 1951 vol 494 c1515
54. Mr. Stephen McAdden

asked the Minister of Food if he will discontinue the imports of Danish, Dutch and Swedish sprats, having regard to their effect upon the British sprat fishing and canning industry.

Dr. Hill

No, Sir. The home canning industry is protected by a 10 per cent. ad valorem import duty.
