HC Deb 23 January 1979 vol 961 cc111-2W
Mr. Sproat

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will intervene with the Transport and General Workers' Union to ensure that fish landed at Aberdeen is not affected by the present industrial action; and it he will make a statement.

Mr. Hugh D. Brown

Procedures for dealing with the movement of fish are included in the agreement reached between the Government and the Transport and General Workers' Union for the transport of essential supplies during the current industrial action. My Department is already in touch with the union through the Scottish Office emergency duty room about specific difficulties at Aberdeen.
