asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that the import duty on British fish entering France has been or is about to be increased from 20 francs to 55 francs per 100 kilos and that the result will be the closing of the French markets to the British fishing industry, with consequent unemployment in the same; and what steps the Government has taken or propose to take to protect the fishing industry in this matter?

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN (Leader of the House):

This question will be answered by the Minister of Agriculture. As the replies have not yet come from France, the hon. and gallant Gentleman in whose name the question stands has been asked to postpone it.
