§ Mr. Greg Knight
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what action is currently being taken by Her Majesty's Government to prevent fishing by foreign vessels in the waters around the Falkland Islands, and if he will make a statement on the effectiveness of such measures.
§ Mr. Rifkind
We are continuing our efforts to bring about the establishment of a multilaterally-based fisheries conservation and management regime in the south Atlantic. The aim of such a regime would be to manage fish stocks and to control the activities of fishing vessels in these waters.
