asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he has any statement to make in regard to the fish supplies to Southampton?

From the returns furnished to my Department by the traders in Southampton, it has been computed that the quantity of fish supplied to that town in terms of whole fish was 16,000 stones in January and 11,860 stones in February.

Could my hon. Friend do something still further, because there is great perturbation in towns about fish supplies?

I can only say that in February Southampton received 145 per cent. of its entitlement of the total landings on a per capita basis.
