§ 29. Mr. James Johnson
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what advice he has received from the Torry Research Station, Humber Industrial Unit and the White Fish Authority regarding overfishing upon the Icelandic Continental Shelf; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Prior
Neither the White Fish Authority nor the Torry Research Station is responsible for advising me on conservation. My scientific advisers share the views of the international bodies concerned that stocks of white fish off Iceland are not at present being over-fished.
