§ Mr. Warren
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what progress has been made in defining an exclusive fishing zone for the Falklands; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Rifkind
As my right hon. and learned Fiend said in the House during the debate on the Falklands—FAC report—on 14 March as reported in columns 495 and 496, the Government have decided to explore possible ways in which to establish a multilaterally based conservation and management regime for fisheries in the waters around the Falkland Islands. We are taking steps to develop that approach.
