HC Deb 26 October 1939 vol 352 cc1578-9W
Mr. Windsor

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is now in a position to state if any further supply of trawlers have been put at the disposal of Hull in order to ease the serious situation that exists among the fish dock workers and to increase supplies of fish to fish-friers?

Mr. Shakespeare

Ten trawlers which were requisitioned and taken up from Hull are being returned to the fishing fleet. In addition, 20 vessels which have been requisitioned but not yet taken up will be released from requisition and not taken for naval service.
