HC Deb 17 December 1925 vol 189 c1676W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that much hardship is being caused both to fishermen and to consumers owing to the large discrepancy in the wholesale and retail prices of fish generally; and whether he will consider bringing this matter to the notice of the Food Council?


My right hon. Friend is aware that the retail price of fish has been the subject of criticism, but he has not received complaints of any special hardship arising from this cause. With regard to the second part of the question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given by my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade on the 1st of this month.
