HC Deb 12 March 1964 vol 691 c94W
Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will forecast the prospects for white fishing in the Broad Bay waters of Lewis.

Mr. Noble

It is impossible to make a forecast for such a small area as Broad Bay. Haddock is the principal species caught there, and the fish are part of the haddock stocks of the Minch which are expected to share over the next year or two in the improvement which has already started in the North Sea haddock stocks.
