HC Deb 17 May 1950 vol 475 cc163-4W
94. Mr. Osborne

asked the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries if, in view of the imminent danger of complete collapse in the fishing industry through the dumping of Icelandic and Danish fish, and the widespread unemploy- ment and distress that obtains in British ports, he will cause an immediate investigation to be made, and prompt action taken to safeguard the livelihood of British fishermen.

Mr. T. Williams

The position of the fishing industry is being examined by the Departments concerned, and until this examination has been completed I cannot make a statement.
