§ 74. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is yet in a position to make a statement on the examination of the Icelandic fisheries dispute with Britain by the special group set up by the Organisation for European Economic Co-operation which met on 24th to 26th January, 1956, and was due to meet again, particularly indicating when the dispute is likely to be resolved.
§ Mr. Dodds-Parker
The proposals regarding the Icelandic Fisheries dispute which were made by the informal group of the Organisation for European Economic Co-operation have been accepted by Her Majesty's Government and the Icelandic Government as a basis for settlement. As part of the process of giving effect to these proposals, representatives of the British and Icelandic trawler owners will shortly meet in Paris under the auspices of the Organisation for European Economic Co-operation for a first exchange of views concerning the orderly resumption of supplies of Icelandic-caught fish to the United Kingdom market.
