HC Deb 14 March 1985 vol 75 cc272-4W
Mr. Harris

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will outline the progress made so far in the introduction of catch log books to United Kingdom fishermen.

Mr. MacGregor

EC logbooks and landing-trans-shipment declarations are due to be introduced on 1 April 1985. The task of distributing logbooks and agreeing the most efficient arrangements for their completion and return from that date began on 21 January. I am satisfied with the progress made so far. This has been made possible by the generally high level of co-operation from all concerned in the industry.
