HL Deb 23 March 1987 vol 486 c108WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What light dues are levied on fish factory ships operating in the territorial sea but only infrequently entering British ports.

Lord Brabazon of Tara

Light dues may be levied on fish factory ships when they enter or leave UK ports, but they are not levied if the ships, although working within UK territorial waters, stay outside the statutory limits of a port authority.
