HC Deb 26 May 1952 vol 501 c98W
48. Mr. Perkins

asked the hon. Member for Woolwich, West, as Chairman of the Kitchen Committee, whether he will issue instructions that the herrings sold in the dining room are served with roes.

Mr. W. A. Steward

I am informed that the herrings being landed in this country at present are mostly "spents" recovering from the winter spawning season, and are therefore without roes. Herrings with full roes will not be available until August. I will comply with my hon. Friend's request as soon as it is possible to do so.

Forward to
