HC Deb 24 February 1964 vol 690 c9W
70. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is aware that the British Trawlers Federation Limited and other authoritative bodies representing the British fishing industry have expressed by letter and otherwise their concern at the results so far as Britain is concerned of the recent International Fisheries Conference in London, and have submitted to him proposals for rectifying the loss and inconveniences to the British fishing industry by the findings of that conference; and what steps he will take on those proposals.

Mr. Soames

I am aware of these representations but would point out that the Conference has not yet concluded its deliberations.
