68. Lady Grant
asked the Minister of Food if the Norwegian Government asked for an increase in the price of herring this season; why a charge is to be made for containers, for which no charge has ever 351W previously been made; and if he is aware that for processors to handle these herring on these terms will involve them in serious loss.
§ Dr. Summerskill
The answer to the first part is, "Yes, Sir." As to the second part a charge was made to freshers last year and is being made again this year. The proposal to extend it to processors has been dropped. The third part of the Question does not, therefore, arise.
