asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he is aware of the unfair and inadequate proportion of fish received in Leeds and district since the introduction of the Fish Zoning Scheme; and whether he will allot to Leeds supplying ports additional to those at present permitted?
