HC Deb 14 March 1945 vol 409 c253W
Dr. Little

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether, in view of the inconvenience and loss caused to the fishing trade in Northern Ireland by the shortage of boxes he will make shipping arrangements to bring about a speedier return of empty fish boxes to Northern Ireland from Great Britain.

Mr. Noel-Baker

Adequate shipping space has always been provided for the transport of empty fish boxes from Great Britain to Northern Ireland, but the severe weather in January and in the early part of February caused some difficulty. I understand that there is now no delay in the return of the boxes.
