HC Deb 02 July 1958 vol 590 c86W
55. Mr. Wall

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what instructions Her Majesty's ships have been given to protect British trawlers fishing outside the four-mile limit from the Icelandic coast, but within the proposed 12-mile limit.

Mr. R. Allan

As my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary said earlier this afternoon, the attitude of Her Majesty's Government to the extension by Iceland of her fishery limits is contained in Her Majesty's Government's Declaration of 4th June. I cannot at present add to this.
