HC Deb 18 October 1939 vol 352 cc894-5W
Mr. Windsor

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he has considered the communication from the Federation of British Port Wholesale Fish Merchants' Associations protesting against the delay in calling a meeting of the advisory committee promised for the fish trade; and whether he is aware that the establishment of local allocation committees, together with the fixing of a schedule of maximum prices, is being held up because the advisory committee is not operative?
