HC Deb 02 July 1979 vol 969 cc465-6W
Mr. Wm. Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will now place a time limit on the number of years for which drift netting licences for salmon will be issued to foreign fishermen to allow them to fish in United Kingdom waters adjacent to Northern Ireland.

Mr. Giles Shaw

No, not at present. But I am prepared to keep this matter under review.
