HC Deb 01 December 1938 vol 342 c615W
Mr. M. MacMillan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he can make a statement with regard to the German herring-gutting machine, claimed to be a substitute for the gutting work of fisherwomen employed in the British herring industry?

Mr. Wedderburn

I understand that a representative of the Herring Industry Board (who is at present in Germany) has inspected certain herring-gutting machines there but that his investigations are not yet complete.
