HC Deb 15 December 1960 vol 632 c589
32. Mr. Jeger

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he has now received the Report of the Fleck Committee on the fishing industry.

Mr. Soames

Yes, Sir; and I am arranging for publication as soon as possible.

Mr. Jeger

I thank the right hon. Member for that reply. Will he make arrangements for it to be widely known in the industry and, after it has had sufficient time for consideration, will he arrange for a debate on this subject without having to be prodded about it for the next few years?

Mr. Soames

I hope to be able to publish this Report some time next month—probably towards the end of the month. The industry will then be deeply interested. As to a debate in this House, as the hon. Member knows, that is for the usual channels to decide.

Forward to
