HC Deb 12 February 1973 vol 850 c222W
36. Mr. James Johnson

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry which of the recommendations of the Holland Martin Report on deep-water trawling he intends to implement during the present Session; and, in particular, when he intends to act on that relating to hours of work.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

A unit is being set up within the Department in order to speed up the implementation of those outstanding recommendations which concern the Government; but statutory rules on construction and survey are unlikely to be laid before the House until next Session. We are at present consulting the fishing industry on the content of regulations relating to rest periods at sea.
