HC Deb 06 February 1980 vol 978 c227W
37. Mr. Grimond

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what difference the agreement on total allowable catches for 1980 reached by the Council of Fisheries Ministers on 29 January will make to the quotas for Scottish fishermen for the current year.

Mr. Younger

The landings allowances now in force for haddock and whiting were set taking account of the total allowable catches recommended for 1980. The slight increases since agreed by the Council of Ministers would not justify any change.
