78. Sir R. Boothby

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has now received a report from the Herring Industry Board on the working of the present share system in the herring fishing industry, the question of prices, and the financial structure of the industry as a whole, with particular reference to the burden of debt; what specific recommendations it contains; and what action he proposes to take.

Mr. J. Stuart

The Herring Industry Board is considering the points raised by my hon. Friend and I have no statement to make at present.
