HC Deb 16 May 1977 vol 932 cc41-2W
Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress he has made in securing adequate exclusive limits for the fishing industry.

Mr. Millan

The objective of the Government continues to be to obtain a settlement which secures the interests of the fishing industry. We shall study the EEC Commission's proposals very closely and we hope that they will form the basis for substantial negotiations leading to an acceptable solution.
