asked the Minister of Food if he has any statement to make with regard to the experiments he has carried out into the use of fish albumen in the manufacture of many and various products; and if these experiments include investigation into the use of dogfish for this purpose.

This work is being carried out by the Association of Fish Meal Manufacturers, not by my Department. I understand that they have not yet been able to produce an albumen substitute which is acceptable. Their experimental work is being continued on a small scale, but does not include the use of dogfish, which is considered to be technically unsuitable.
