HC Deb 06 November 1978 vol 957 c89W
Mr. Wm. Ross

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what plans he has to hold discussions with the Minister of Fisheries of the Republic of Ireland regarding the protection of migratory fish in the waters surrounding the British Isles and in those areas of the United Kingdom and the Irish Republic where both countries have responsibility for the protection of such fish.

Mr. Bishop

At present my right hon. Friend has no plans for a meeting on this particular subject, but he has on several occasions pressed the Irish Government to ensure that their existing protective legislation is fully enforced.
