HC Deb 26 February 1963 vol 672 c150W
Viscount Lambton

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will introduce legislation to enable inshore fishermen to have the right to fish beyond the three-mile limit from 1st February onwards.

Mr. Scott-Hopkins

Orders controlling fishing for salmon and migratory trout in specified areas were introduced to protect traditional fisheries, and it is not, at present, proposed to revoke them. In general British fishermen may fish freely for all other species.
