§ 57. Mr. D. Marshall
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is now in a position to make a statement with regard to the continuance of the subsidy to certain classes of catchers of white fish and also to the pilchard fisheries.
Mr. T. Williams
No, Sir, I am not yet in a position to make a statement. The matter is now under examination.
§ Mr. Marshall
Will the Minister be able to make a statement before Parliament rises for the Christmas Recess?
§ Sir Ronald Ross
Will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind the increased carriage charges which fishermen who are far from their markets have to pay?
§ Mr. Boothby
Will the Minister bear in mind that he cannot go on subsidising white fish and pilchards indefinitely unless he also subsidises herrings?
