asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food, in what capacity Mr. Montague Gluckstein Abrahams has been attending meetings of the advisory committee to the Ministry on meat manufactures; and whether, as this man was fined £250 for aiding and abetting in an offence arising out of the sale of fish, he will assure the House no more advice will be accepted by the Ministry from this person?

In reply to the first part of my hon. Friend's Question Mr. M. G. Abrahams was appointed in December, 1940, a member of an advisory committee on meat manufactures on the nomination of the Sausages and Cooked Meat Manufacturers Association. My Noble Friend is considering what action he should take as a result of the recent proceeding taken against this trader under the Fish (Maximum Prices) Order and I will communicate with my hon. Friend when a decision has been reached. In the meantime Mr. Abrahams will not be invited to attend any meetings of the advisory committee.
