HC Deb 28 June 1965 vol 715 cc12-3W
41. Sir W. Anstruther-Gray

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that large numbers of dead fish floating on the surface of the North Sea are attributable to blasting operations in search of oil; and what action he proposes to take.

Dr. Dickson Mahon

No. My right hon. Friend is assured that the number of fish killed in this way is not large nor damaging to the fishing industry.
