HC Deb 31 March 1958 vol 585 cc81-2W
11. Mr. Teeling

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, in view of the active interest taken by his Department in negotiations concerning the closing of the Brighton fish market up to the end of last year, and in view of the recent recommendation by the Fisheries Committee of the Brighton Council to close the market next September without offering any economically practical alternative to the fishermen, what steps he is now prepared to take to solve the deadlock.

Mr. Godber

My right hon. Friend is informed that the Brighton Council has decided to call for a further report on the possibility of providing accommodation for the wholesale fish market on an alternative site. The local officers of my Department and of the White Fish Authority will continue to keep in touch with developments.
