§ 1. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that the development of the quick freezing of fish in Scotland is retarded by the lack of assistance which, under existing law, the White Fish Authority can give to processors in Scotland; and if he will take steps so to alter the law as to enable the White Fish Authority to give the assistance which is essential for the full development of this side of the fishing industry in Scotland.
§ Lord John Hope
I have nothing to add to what my right hon. and learned Friend the Lord Advocate said in reply to the hon. Lady the Member for Aberdeen, South (Lady Tweedsmuir) on 4th February.
