§ Sir A. SINCLAIR
asked the Minister of Agriculture with what countries, other than Germany, he has concluded agreements for the restriction of imports of sea-fish; what is the maximum quantity in cwts. which each country will be allowed to import in each of the next three years; and whether there will be any restriction upon the imports of sea-fish from countries other than those with which these agreements have been concluded?
§ Major ELLIOT
The countries with which agreements have been concluded for the restriction of imports of sea-fish are given in the following statement, which also shows the amount in cwts. which each country will be allowed to import in each of the next three years:
Maximum Annual Quantity. Country. Cwts. Norway … 740,000 Denmark and Faroe … 412,000 Iceland … 354,000 Sweden … 43,000 Germany … 693,000
These maximum quantities are equivalent to 90 per cent. of the average annual imports into the United Kingdom from the respective countries during the three years 1930–1932. Imports from other countries will be restricted on a similar basis.
