§ Lord FERMOY
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether his attention has been called to the threatened eviction of the fishermen of Brancaster, Norfolk, from their shell-fish layings in Brancaster 1556W Harbour and also from their whelk huts there; whether he is aware that if these threats are carried out the effect will be the total extinction of the only local industry and the consequent unemployment of a hard-working community of fishermen; and what steps he proposes to take to deal with the matter?
§ Sir H. BARNSTON
My right hon. Friend's attention was called to the matters referred to in the question a short time ago, and the fishermen were requested and undertook to furnish a plan showing the exact locality of the layings, huts, and road affected, but this has not yet been received. As soon as it arrives my right hon. Friend will go into the matter without delay
