§ 105. Wing Commander Hulbert
asked the Minister of Food what amount of brislings were purchased by his Department from Denmark during the past 12 months; what proportion of these has been made available to the public; and what loss has been incurred by his Department on account of the Danish refusal to repurchase this surplus.
§ Mr. F. Willey
Approximately 1,170 tons of canned brisling were imported from Denmark during 1950, all of which has been made available to distributors. I cannot yet say what will be the ultimate financial outcome of this transaction.
§ Mr. Bossom
asked the Minister of Food how many tins of sprats and brisling were sold back to the countries from which they were originally bought; and what was the total cost of the shipping, handling and storage of those returned.
