HC Deb 23 January 1980 vol 977 c280W
Mr. Grimond

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will review the regulations relating to fish processing at Scottish ports, in the light of the losses caused to the ports by direct shipment of fish to fish carriers.

Mr. Younger

There are no regulations as such, but United Kingdom vessels are authorised to trans-ship mackerel only at recognised ports or at a place authorised by a local inspector of sea fisheries.
