HC Deb 15 February 1962 vol 653 c180W
36. Lady Tweedsmuir

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will ensure that the White Fish Authority can provide loans for the purchase of second-hand fishing vessels.

Mr. Vane

Yes. The arrangements covering the making of loans for vessels and engines are being revised so as to permit the White Fish Authority to provide, in suitable cases, loans to inshore fishermen to purchase second-hand vessels. This should be completed before long.
