HC Deb 18 June 1969 vol 785 c102W
33. Sir C. Osborne

asked the President of the Board of Trade what reply he has sent to the Icelandic authorities' representations that Icelandic trawlers have to wait up to 48 hours in Grimsby before they can apply for labour, and that they must wait until all British ships have been landed; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Crosland

The Board of Trade has received no such representations from the Icelandic authorities. These matters are in any case primarily the responsibility of the fishing industry in Grimsby.
