HC Deb 05 December 1939 vol 355 cc480-1W
Mr. Parker

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will state the percentage of cod, haddock, hake and plaice, respectively, landed at United Kingdom ports during 1938 from distant waters as compared with the percentage landed from the North Sea?

Sir R. Dorman-Smith

Particulars of the quantities and percentages of cod, haddock, hake and plaice landed in Great Britain during 1938 from distant grounds, the North Sea and other near and middle waters by British fishing vessels are as follow:

been appointed members of the county war emergency committees; and whether there are any poultry sub-committees of the county war emergency committees?

Sir R. Dorman-Smith

No representatives of the poultry industry as such have been appointed to the county war agricultural executive committees which, as my hon. Friend will be aware, are mainly concerned with ploughing and cultivations. As regards the second part of the question, the appointment of subcommittees to deal with certain sections of work is primarily a matter for the county committees themselves, and I am advised that no committee has as yet found it necessary to set up a poultry sub-committee.
