HC Deb 29 October 1985 vol 84 cc456-7W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Prime Minister what headway has been made on Her Majesty's Government's multilateral initiative on a Falkland Islands fisheries conservation and management regime; and if she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

The Government are continuing their efforts to bring about the establishment of a multilaterally-based fisheries conservation and management regime in the south Atlantic. In his speech to the United Nations General Assembly on 25 September, my right hon. and learned Friend the Foreign and Commonwealth Secretary made clear the Government's support for the Food and Agriculture Organisation's constructive initiative in this field and his hope that Argentina would be prepared to work with the Food and Agriculture Organisation, too.
