HC Deb 25 June 1975 vol 894 c168W
47. Mr. Watt

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what progress has been made in discussion with his EEC partners on the problem of fish conservation in EEC waters.

Mr. Strang

The problem of fish conservation in waters around EEC countries, apart from the Mediterranean, is dealt with in the North East Atlantic Fisheries Commission. The problem is difficult, but I believe the Commission is having considerable success. All EEC countries are members of it except Italy and Luxembourg.
