§ 74. Mr. Boothby
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether cured herrings were specifically included in the recent trade agreement with Poland; and whether he is taking steps to include them, wherever possible, in future trade agreements.
§ Mr. Bottomley
Yes. The Polish Government has specifically undertaken to authorise the purchase from the United Kingdom in 1949 of cured herrings to a value of not less than £400,000 and if possible to an increasing value in each of the years 1950 to 1953. I hope it will be possible to secure adequate provision for the sale of cured herrings in other trade agreements in the future.
