HC Deb 28 May 1976 vol 912 cc396-7W
Mr. Richard Wainwright

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what studies have been made of the feasibility of developing the fishing industry around British territory in the South Atlantic Ocean.

Mr. Bishop

The possibilities of developing a British fishery in the South Atlantic have been examined extensively in recent years and are kept under continuous review. All the evidence is that this area is unlikely to provide the domestic British industry with viable fishing opportunities.
