HC Deb 19 January 1943 vol 386 c68W
Colonel Carver

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the growing importance of the fishing industry, he will consider separating the fisheries section of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries from the agricultural and making two Departments?

Mr. Attlee

I would remind my hon. and gallant Friend that there is already a separate Fisheries Department within the Ministry of Agriculture. The appointment of a separate Minister would not be justified.
