HC Deb 25 February 1952 vol 496 cc108-9W
146. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proposals or recommendations he has now received from the White Fish Authority regarding the fishing industry in Scotland; and if he will make such proposals available to Members of this House.

Mr. J. Stuart

Since I replied to the hon. and learned Member's similiar Question on 19th February the Authority have published Draft Regulations providing for the registration of wholesale merchants in the United Kingdom. Subject to confirmation by Ministers after considering any objections lodged, the Regulations will, in due course, be laid before Parliament.
