HC Deb 09 March 1961 vol 636 c60W
44. Mr. Hoy

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what steps he is taking to call a conference of European fishing countries to consider the future of the available fishing grounds, the exploration of new fishing grounds and the conservation of fish.

Mr. Soames

The International Council for the Exploration of the Sea, and the Commissions established under the 1946 Convention and the Convention for the North-west Atlantic, already provide machinery for consideration of these problems.
