HC Deb 18 June 1984 vol 62 c40W
Mr. McQuarrie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will take steps to ensure that the Danish fishermen do not have their whitefish by-catch in pout catches increased by 10 per cent.

Mr. John MacKay

We are well aware of the industry's concern over this issue. We shall continue to do all that we can to protect important white fish stocks from the effects of industrial fishing.
