HC Deb 08 February 1967 vol 740 cc338-9W
Mr. Wolrige-Gordon

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware of the situation on the west coast of Scotland where a quota on herring catching has been imposed to the disadvantage of the Purse Seine Net; and what steps he will take to remove that disadvantage.

Mr. Ross

The landing quotas in operation at North West Scottish ports are fixed by the fishermen themselves under arrangements to which I understand the purse seine net fishermen assented. I do not think any action on my part is called for.
