HC Deb 11 March 1981 vol 1000 c355W
Mr. Grimond

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he has received a report from the Dutch Government on fish imports from Holland; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

The Dutch Minister responsible for fisheries agreed to look into certain points which we discussed with him when we met in February. Since then we have set up a team of officials and representatives of the catching industry here to investigate a number of questions which have been raised about imports generally. We shall consider whether further contact with the Dutch Government would be appropriate in the light of that team's report.
