§ Mr. MacLennan
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has received about the dumping of Norwegian salmon on the British market.
§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
We have received representations from a number of hon. Members, and from salmon farming interests in Scotland, about the effect of Norwegian imports on the European Community market for farmed salmon, particularly the market in France.
The Government understand the industry's concerns and we are working closely with it to secure the future of the salmon farming industry in the United Kingdom.
