HC Deb 01 February 1954 vol 523 c1
1. Mr. Dodds

asked the Minister of Food, as tinned salmon has been scarce for a considerable period, when the next distribution is likely to take place.

The Minister of Food (Major Lloyd George)

On 21st March next.

Mr. Dodds

Will the right hon. and gallant Gentleman make sure that on this occasion less goes to catering establishments and more to housewives?

Major Lloyd George

The hon. Member can rest assured that it will be fairly distributed.

Commander Donaldson

Can my right hon. and gallant Friend estimate how much is to be imported from British Columbia during the current year?

Major Lloyd George

Of the allocation which I have just announced, I should think that 72 per cent. will be Canadian.
