§ Mr. Pardoe
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will set up an inquiry into the marketing arrangements for the Cornish pilchard industry.
§ Mr. John Mackie
During recent years there have been several inquiries into the supply and marketing of Cornish pilchards including very extensive experimental fishing which failed to resolve the basic problem of irregularity of supplies. I can see no justification for a further inquiry.
