HC Deb 21 November 1966 vol 736 cc234-5W
Mr. Clegg

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what steps he is taking to prevent over-fishing of sea fishing grounds; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Hoy

The United Kingdom plays an active part in the work of the International Commissions which are responsible for the conservation of fish stocks in the North Atlantic area. British vessels are required to comply with the measures prescribed by these Commissions to prevent over-fishing.
