HC Deb 25 June 1976 vol 913 c448W
Mr. Sproat

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the policy of Her Majesty's Government with regard to the possible extension by the Faroese of their fishing limits; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Hattersley

I have been asked to reply.

It would not be opportune for me to say anything now. We would expect to learn from the Danish Government of any development both as to the principle and to the timing of any such extension.
