38. Air Commodore Harvey
asked the Minister of Food how much fish from the ports of Hull and Grimby which was unsold during the week commencing 24th November was disposed of to fish-meal factories.

Does not this show that, in spite of the action by the Icelandic Government, these large quantities of fish failed to secure even one bid from the buyers at the wharf; and does not it seem that the industry is doing quite well on its own account?
It is characteristic of the industry that a glut may occur on one day at a time of relative scarcity. Therefore, I do not follow the argument of my hon. and gallant Friend.
