§ 16. Mr. James Johnson
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement upon his discussions with the Icelandic Foreign Minister regarding the claim to extend fishing limits to 50 miles; what is the present position in waters off Iceland; and what action he is taking to protect the interests and welfare of British deep-sea fleet fishing in those waters.
§ Mr. Anthony Royle
