Mr Charles Grey: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that Hetton Urban District Council is finding it extremely difficult to obtain sodium discharge lamps?

Orders of the Day — White Fish and Herring Industries Bill (31 Jan 1961)

Mr Charles Grey: I hope that the noble Lady the Member for Aberdeen, South (Lady Tweedsmuir) will forgive me if I do not follow her argument about the Bill and subsidies.

Members on both sides of the House that I, representing a constituency which has no fishing industry in it,...

Mr Charles Grey: The Minister said that he would reply to Questions No. 11 and 12 together, but I ask him to look at No. 12 again and answer it, because what he said is not an answer to my Question.
