HC Deb 17 January 1984 vol 71 c197W
29. Sir Hector Monro

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what representations he has received concerning salmon tagging.

Mr. MacGregor

I have received representations from a number of sources about the idea of tagging salmon in order to reduce illegal fishing. As I announced last February we are examining the practical problems associated with a tagging scheme and we have been taking into account the varying views expressed to us.
