HC Deb 07 February 1980 vol 978 cc737-8
Q3. Mr. John Home Robertson

asked the Prime Minister if she will visit St. Abbs, Berwickshire.

The Prime Minister

I have at present no plans to do so.

Mr. Home Robertson

I am sorry to hear that. I think that many people would like to talk to the Prime Minister about the village school which is about to close. Is the Prime Minister aware of the mounting fury in all Scottish fishing ports about the flood of black market, imported fish which is coming into the country and ruining the livelihood of our fishermen? Will she take immediate steps to control the over-fishing of the North Sea and if necessary, impose a levy on imported fish?

The Prime Minister

The hon. Member knows, or will soon know, that there will soon be a debate on fish. I am very much aware of the strong feeling that a large amount of fish is being landed in Scottish ports in competition with our fish. I am closely in touch with my right hon. Friend on this matter.
