HC Deb 27 July 1966 vol 732 cc274-5W
82. Mr. McNamara

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what machinery exists for consultation between his Department and the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food to secure protection for the North Sea herring fleet.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

Our two Departments keep in close touch at all times; we aim to protect not only the North Sea herring fleet, but all the fishermen around our coasts.
