§ 10. Mr. Buchanan-Smith
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will conduct a survey of the effect of oil slicks on fishing, particularly shell fishing, off the East Coast of Great Britain.
§ Mr. Buchanan-Smith
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, despite the help of the Board of Trade and the Ministry of Defence, it has been impossible to trace the source of recent oil slicks off the east coast of Scotland? Is he aware that there is great concern among the fishermen of these coasts, and will he do as much as he can to trace where these slicks originate?
