HC Deb 10 March 1966 vol 725 cc625-6W
Q2. Mr. Grimond

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the need to expand and keep up to date the fishing industry, he will take steps to co-ordinate the activities of the Secretary of State for Scotland and the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food in the administration of this industry.

The Prime Minister

I am quite satisfied that the activities of the Ministers primarily responsible for fisheries are adequately co-ordinated; indeed, in most matters concerning the fishing industry statutory powers and duties are vested jointly in the Ministers and are exercised jointly.
