HC Deb 28 July 1983 vol 46 c563W
Sir Bernard Braine

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what steps are being taken either unilaterally or with other interested parties to develop the marine protein resources of South Georgia.

Mr. Whitney

As my hon. Friend the Member for Woking (Mr. Onslow) told my hon. Friend on 2 February—[Vol. 36, c. 123]—a number of companies have expressed an interest in the exploitation of the fisheries around both the Falkland Islands and South Georgia. These approaches are under active consideration by the Falkland Islands Government and ourselves.
