HC Deb 08 February 1967 vol 740 c309W
80. Mr. James Johnson

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he is taking to ensure the greater stability of fishing trawlers.

Mr. J, P. W. Mallalieu

A number of countries, including the United Kingdom, are at present studying the stability characteristics of their trawler fleets. The results will be considered in the Inter-Governmental Maritime Consultative Organisation (I.M.C.O.) with a view to developing internationally acceptable standards of stability.
