HC Deb 23 June 1971 vol 819 c285W
Mr. Sillars

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many letters he has received since the beginning of June from Scottish inshore fishing organisations about the retention of the 12-mile limit; and what replies he has sent.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

I have received two letters from Scottish Inshore Fishing Organisations about the retention of the 12-mile limit. No formal replies have been sent, but I and my hon. Friend, the Under-Secretary of State for Home Affairs and Agriculture met representatives of the Scottish inshore industry recently and discussed the whole question with them.
