§ 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.
