HC Deb 13 July 1943 vol 391 cc43-4W
Colonel Carver

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether the fish sold as kippers are kippered on orthodox lines?

Mr. Mabane

Yes, Sir. In most cases kippers are being cured at the present time in the orthodox manner. There is, however, evidence of undesirable practices on the part of some traders which would appear to be an offence against the Fish (Maximum Prices) Order. My Department is taking action to deal with cases of this kind.
