HC Deb 28 September 1944 vol 403 c463W
Mr. Henderson Stewart

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has considered the recent memorandum sent to him by the British Herring Trade Association; and whether it is his intention to act upon the recommendation that exporting and shipbroking firms should be employed, as far as possible, in the sale and shipment of cured herrings handed over by curers and that the chartering of tonnage for the carriage of herrings should be made through the agency of recognised herring shipbrokers.

Colonel Llewellin

I have been asked to reply. I am considering the memorandum submitted by the British Herring Trade Association and am arranging for a meeting in the near future between representatives of the exporters' and ship-brokers' branch of the Association and the officials of my Ministry concerned in order to discuss these proposals.
