§ Sir B. Neven-Spence
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, if he will arrange for a fishery protection cruiser to be stationed in Shetland at an early date, for the protection of the inshore fisheries.
The Fishery Protection cruisers which have been released from Naval Service are in process of being refitted for their normal duties. I can assure the hon. and gallant Member that in arranging the patrols as the cruisers become available the requirements of the Shetland waters will be borne in mind.
