HC Deb 23 July 1985 vol 83 c448W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

asked the Secretary of State for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will authorise fisheries inspectors to compare the grading of fish coming to Grimsby onshore from Scotland and Ireland with that locally landed.

Mr. MacGregor

Responsibility for grading fresh and chilled fish to EC standards lies with the industry. As part of the advisory and supervisory role of the fisheries inspectorate, the chief inspector is currently engaged on an examination of grading performance at Grimsby and a number of other ports.
