HC Deb 22 January 1981 vol 997 cc220-1W
29. Mr. McNamara

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on the future of the fishing industry in Hull.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

We are seeking agreement to a common fisheries policy which meets the essential needs of the United Kingdom fishing industry. If a settlement is reached, it will then be possible for the fishing industry and those concerned with the provision of port facilities at Hull and other ports to assess the opportunities open to them.
