HC Deb 12 April 1967 vol 744 cc198-9W
78. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that the "Torrey Canyon" travelled too far inland in breach of regulations and at too high a speed and ran into a fishing fleet; and if he will take steps to protect British fishing fleets from similar invasions of their traditional fishing grounds.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

The Liberian Government is conducting an inquiry to establish the cause of this casualty. The Government has already made known the urgent steps it is taking to have the implications of the disaster fully considered.
