13. Mr. M. Lindsay

asked the President of the Board of Trade what quantity of herrings were to be sent to Czechoslovakia under the 1955 barter agreement; and what proportion has actually been sent.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

Six thousand barrels of cured herrings and 1,000 tons of klondiked herrings. Two thousand three hundred barrels and 100 tons, respectively, have so far been exported. The balance will be made up from the 1956 catch.
