§ 27. Mr. Tom Cox
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on progress being made to prevent abuses in the fishing industry arising from the use of flags of convenience by other members of the Community.
§ Mr. Gummer
I hope that the measures which my right hon. Friend announced in a written answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Wantage (Mr. Jackson) on 6 December will be effective in ensuring that the quotas allocated to the United Kingdom are reserved for fishing vessels having a real economic link with this country.
