§ Sir W. Edge
asked the Minister of Food why there is to be less fish for caterers; and whether supplies of fish are decreasing.1641W
§ Colonel Llewellin
Yes, Sir. It is anticipated that there will be some reduction in landings of fish during the current four-weekly period. As regards supplies to caterers, there will be no restrictions during the period 3rd to 9th August inclusive, and the reduction to which my hon. Friend refers will apply to only three weeks out of the four weeks' period. It does not, therefore, follow that for the four weeks' period as a whole caterers' supplies will show a reduction on the previous period.
