HC Deb 11 August 1920 vol 133 c431W

asked the Minister of Transport if he will issue instructions to the effect that only closed vans shall be used for the transport of fish, supplying plenty of ventilation without being exposed to the sun?


Special fish vans are used as far as possible, but do not exist in sufficient quantities to deal with sudden gluts of fish at any place. It is not possible to provide them. Invariably, special open fish trucks are preferred to ordinary closed goods vehicles. The provision of suitable rolling stock is one of the matters which is being discussed by the recently-formed Fish Transport Committee.
