HC Deb 26 June 1969 vol 785 cc303-4W
Mr. Maclennan

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what action he will take following the resolution passed at the meeting in Warsaw of the International Commission for the North-West Atlantic Fisheries seeking to ban salmon fishing outside national limits; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Hoy

Reasonable time must be allowed for member Governments of the Commission to signify their formal acceptance of the proposal, which is necessary before it takes legal effect. I shall keep the position under review.
