HC Deb 18 December 1962 vol 669 cc175-6W
Mr. Wolrige-Gordon

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, whether he has studied the proposals of the Herring Industry Board to secure the better distribution and more profitable utilisation of West Coast herring during the autumn and winter seasons; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Noble

I am aware that the Herring Industry Board has made certain proposals to the buyers and the fishermen on the subjects to which my hon. Friend refers. This is a matter for settlement within the industry.
