HC Deb 09 November 1959 vol 613 c1W
1. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will now state his plans for the future financial structure of the fishing industry, indicating in particular the present and future limits for subsidies.

Mr. John Hare

As I indicated in the debate last week on the Sea Fish Industry Bill this Bill will enable subsidy to continue up till 1963. Meanwhile, as hon. Members know, the Government is expecting the report of Sir Alexander Fleck's Committee before the end of 1960.
