§ Mr. Stainton
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what consideration is being given in aid to developing countries in respect of aquaculture projects as proposed in recommendation 961 adopted by the parliamentary assembly of the Council of Europe on 25 January.
§ Mr. Raison
Aquaculture will continue to be an important part of our fisheries aid programme and particular emphasis is expected on research using the considerable experience and facilities available in the United Kingdom. I am writing to my hon. Friend about the research we have commissioned in this field.
