HC Deb 19 June 1961 vol 642 cc86-7W
Lady Tweedsmuir

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he will consider referring the fishing dispute, involving Governments, on the infringement and methods of enforcement of agreed fishing limits in connection with the "Red Crusader" incident, to the International Court at The Hague.

Mr. Heath

As I informed the House on 12th June, Her Majesty's Government and the Danish Government have agreed in principle to the appointment of a commission of inquiry to ascertain the facts of this incident.

Her Majesty's Government hope that any differences between the two Governments may be resolved in the light of the findings of the commission.
