HC Deb 16 July 1969 vol 787 c105W
75. Mr. Alasdair Mackenzie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will institute a study into the question of technical education for fishermen with regard to the physical and economic problems of the industry; and if he will support the founding of a Chair of Fishery Studies at Aberdeen University and a regional college at Ullapool in view of its growing importance as a fishing centre.

Mr. Ross

My Departments are at present discussing with other interested bodies the best means of supplementing existing educational facilities for those entering or engaged in the fishing industry and the location of such facilities. The establishment of a Chair is a matter for the university authorities to consider.
