HC Deb 20 June 1975 vol 893 c558W
Mr. Watt

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress has been made towards instituting a fund from which fishermen may draw compensation for loss and damage to fishing gear caused by oil-related debris on the sea bed.

Mr. William Ross

Discussions on this matter are at an advanced stage in the Fisheries and Offshore Oil Consultative Group and I hope that an announcement will be made at an early date.
