HC Deb 08 November 1976 vol 919 c98W
Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what are the terms of reference for the EEC representatives who will be negotiating on the United Kingdom's behalf with Iceland on fishery matters.

Dr. Owen

Negotiations with all non-member Governments will be conducted on behalf of the European Community by the Commission. The Commission's proposals for the negotiations were contained in its Communication to the Council on the Future External Fisheries Policy and Internal Fisheries System (R/2227/76), copies of which have been made available to the Scrutiny Committee. In the case of Iceland the proposals were endorsed without significant amendment by the Foreign Ministers on 30th October.
