asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether we are going to continue sending fresh fish and cured herring to the British zone in Germany during the remainder of this year; and what number of barrels of cured herring is contemplated.

An offer made by the Herring Industry Board on behalf of the British herring industry to supply at least 20,000 tons of fresh and 25,000 tons of cured herring from the British 1947 catch is at present under consideration by the joint Anglo-American authority in Germany which is responsible for the procurement of food for the combined British and American zones.
