HC Deb 02 November 1979 vol 972 cc710-1W
Mr. McQuarrie

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make representations to the EEC Commissioner for Fisheries that any interim scheme which may be introduced in January 1980 should contain provisions for modernisation of fishing vessels.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

My right hon. Friend notes the suggestion, which will receive careful study should the question of a further extension to the current scheme of interim aid from FEOGA be proposed by the Commission.
