§ Brigadier-General CROFT
asked the President of the Board of Trade why, when retailers are controlled in the fish trade, steam-trawler owners should not be compelled to accept a percentage of profit on the net cost of their production as retailers are compelled to accept a percentage on the cost of their buying?
§ Mr. McCURDY
I have been asked to reply. The control exercised over the 65W fish trade is not confined to retailers, but is enforced by means of a graduated scale of maximum prices, applicable to each branch of the trade, including producers.
