HC Deb 02 December 1953 vol 521 c130W
29. Mr. Murray

asked the Minister of Food when he expects the next distribution of salmon; and if he will state the quantity he expects, and do everything he can to have a distribution before Christmas.

Major Lloyd George

Stocks in this country are not large enough to make an allocation before Christmas. We are awaiting the arrival of the balance of our last purchase and I hope to distribute it during the first quarter of next year.
