HC Deb 14 November 1939 vol 353 c560W
Mr. Boothby

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether the Herring Industry Board continues to function; whether there has been any change in its personnel; whether the board is to be retained as the controlling authority over the industry during the war; and whether it is proposed to increase its powers?

Mr. Colville

No change has been made in the personnel of the Herring Industry Board which is still in existence. Its activities have been restricted and it is proposed to limit its functions to those which do not fall to Government Departments under war conditions.
