HC Deb 14 January 1987 vol 108 c192W
Mr. McQuarrie

asked the Prime Minister if she will review co-ordination between the Secretary of Slate for Defence and the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food with respect to decisions on the approval sought for the Russian Klondyker vessels to tranship mackerel in Falmouth Bay, in view of the effects of the delay on the Scottish fishing fleet; and if she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

Security considerations must be taken fully into account in deciding on the stationing of east European factory vessels for trans-shipping purposes in United Kingdom ports. I am satisfied with arrangements for consultation between the Fisheries Departments and the Ministry of Defence on this matter.
