HC Deb 25 February 1936 vol 309 cc273-5W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the trawl fishermen in Aberdeen have their pay computed on settling sheets which do not fulfil the requirements of the law; whether he will take immediate steps to have the law in regard to settling sheets enforced; and whether, at the same time, he will investigate the inadequate provision which exists to enable the crews to check the justice of deductions for ice, water, coal, and food supplied?


I am informed that the matters referred to in the question have been receiving the attention of the Sea-Fish Commission. When their report is available further consideration will be given to the points raised in my hon. Friend's question.
