HC Deb 17 July 1941 vol 373 cc750-1W
Sir R. Blair

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether plans have now been settled by which to distribute and supply all available herring and pilchards to inland towns of central and southern England?

Major Lloyd George

Arrangements have been made whereby herring and pilchards can be forwarded from the ports of landing by merchants without payment of carriage. This should encourage equitable distribution to all centres to which such fish can be sent with a certainty of arriving in a marketable condition.
