What is this film with the uneaten breakfast kipper?

Another "What is this movie?" question. A girl or young woman can't eat her kipper at the family breakfast table, so it is brought out for her lunch, dinner and so on until eventually the cat eats it. It later turns out that the reason she couldn't stomach it was that she was pregnant. 1970s or pre-1970s film; John Mills may have been in it.

At our Christmas party yesterday, my aunt and grandmother mentioned that they were trying to find a film they remembered watching together one Christmas in the 1970s. The scene described above is the only one they remember clearly. My aunt and dad have been searching online for clues for a while, without success. Yesterday my dad suggested that the girl's father might
have been played by John Mills.
I would love to identify this film and get a copy of it for them. Does it ring a bell for anyone here? I've had a quick look at John Mill's filmography on IMDB
but there's a lot there and none of them are familiar to me! The Family Way
looks like the best fit but not very close at all.
Thanks for any help.
