§ Mr. Kilfedder
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will take steps to notify the skippers of fishing boats on the County Down coast of the fisheries limits which will apply in the Irish Sea and the North Channel after the United Kingdom joins the Common Market.
§ Mr. David Howell
The Treaty of Accession provides for the continuance of existing fisheries limits for 10 years off the County Down coast and local skippers are aware of this. The provisions of the treaty will be given detailed effect in a designation order made under the Fishery Limits Act, 1964.
