HC Deb 04 August 1939 vol 350 c2833W
Sir D. Thomson

asked the Minister of Agriculture (i) Whether he can make any statement regarding the application of monthly quotas for the importation of fish; and, if not, whether he hopes that any statement may shortly be possible; (2) whether he is investigating the problem caused by the landing of foreign fish in filleted form; and whether he can yet make any statement?

Sir R. Dorman-Smith

I am investigating the questions of monthly quotas and of imported fillets in consultation with the Board of Trade. I am not yet in a position to make a definite statement, but I hope to be able to do so in the near future.
