HC Deb 24 January 1940 vol 356 cc592-3W
Mr. R. Gibson

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he will now make a statement regarding the provision of more canning factories in the Clyde area, to make available for Service men and the general public the abundant supplies of herring in these waters?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I would refer the hon. and learned Member to the reply given to his previous Question on this subject on 12th December. The further inquiries which have been made confirm the view that the capacity of the existing canning factories is sufficient to cope with any demands that are likely to be made upon them in the future.
