HC Deb 11 April 1935 vol 300 c1348W
Viscount ELMLEY

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether the members of the Sea Fish Commission were consulted as regards the election of the members of the Herring Board or if any representations were received from members of the Commission with reference to its composition?


No, Sir. The recommendations in the Report of the Sea Fish Commission as to the composition of the Herring Industry Board were kept closely in view by my right hon. Friend the Secertary of State for Scotland and myself in considering the constitution of the Board. We did not, however, think it desirable to consult the Commission with regard to the individual appointments.
