HC Deb 07 February 1961 vol 634 c202
32. Mr. Willis

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in view of the reports of the International Geophysical Year, it is proposed to carry out any research into changing ocean temperatures around Scotland and the effects upon Scottish fisheries.

Mr. Maclay

Research of this kind has been carried out by the scientists in my Department for many years and will be continued.

Mr. Willis

In view of the claims which are being made in the campaign being conducted against the Hydro-Electric Board, will the right hon. Gentleman say whether any of this research is devoted to the effects on salmon?

Mr. Maclay

The connection of thought between the International Geophysical Year and the Hydro-Electric Board is too much for me at Question Time.
