§ 59. Sir W. SUGDEN
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will give the names of the Committee who have been appointed to inquire into the charges of profiteering in the sale of fish; and when they expect the Report?
No Committee has been specially appointed, but the Food Council have decided to make an inquiry into fish prices. It is beyond my power to say when their Report may be expected.
§ Sir W. SUGDEN
Will there be expert evidence from the fishermen brought to bear upon the considerations of this Committee?
I have no means of knowing this, as the Food Council is an independent body and the President of the Board of Trade has no control whatever over it.
