HC Deb 31 July 1963 vol 682 cc96-7W
111. Mr. Wolrige-Gordon

asked the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will seek powers to provide a grant or loan for the construction of small fishing vessels in which to train potential skipper owners.

Mr. Scott-Hopkins

No. I am not aware of the need to provide grants or loans for small fishing vessels for training purposes. Skippers are best trained in commercial vessels.
