HC Deb 14 February 1962 vol 653 cc161-2W
86. Lady Tweedsmuir

asked the Lord Privy Seal when the Danish Government requested negotiations to end the 1959 fishing agreement; and what reply he has sent.

91. Mr. Crosland

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he has received a request from the Danish Government to extend the fishing limits round the Faroes; and what action he proposes to take to protect the interests of the British fishing industry in this area.

Mr. Heath

The 1959 Agreement requires the two countries to consider whether any modification to it should be made. A memorandum setting out the views of the Danish Government was received at the Foreign Office on 5th February. The memorandum is under consideration.
