HC Deb 31 January 1929 vol 224 c1163W

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he is aware that the percentage of United Kingdom imports of canned salmon from Canada has decreased from 19.25 in 1924 to 17.45 in 1928; and whether it is the intention of the Empire Marketing Board to increase its propaganda in this country in respect of this Empire product?


I have been asked to answer this question. My right hon. Friend is aware that imports of Canadian tinned salmon into the United Kingdom have decreased between 1924 and 1928. This fact has already been brought to the notice of the Empire Marketing Board and arrangements have been made to give further publicity to this commodity.
