§ Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that the increase in the consumption of herring has diminished the supplies of herring supplies for Scottish oil and meal factories thereby damaging the industry, and causing unemployment; and what plans he has to meet this situation.
§ Mr. Ross
Apart from seasonal fluctuations, the supply of herring to oil and meal factories has not diminished. It was greater in 1966 than in any of the five preceding years.
