HC Deb 12 January 1978 vol 941 c816W
21. Mr. Wall

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if it is his policy in negotiating a common fisheries policy that Great Britain should control an effective conservation and quota licensing system up to 200 or 50 or 12 miles from the coast.

Mr. Bishop

The United Kingdom's fisheries jurisdiction extends to 200 miles from our coast or to the median lines; and it is our right and responsibility to enforce any Community or national conservation measures throughout these limits.
