§ Mr. Dalyell
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what response he has given to the Uruguay proposals for south Atlantic fisheries.
§ Mr. Garel-Jones
The proposed Uruguayan scientific conference in Montevideo in June to discuss South Atlantic fisheries has now been cancelled. As the Falklands fishery is one of the main fisheries in the region, we had arranged United Kingdom representation at the conference, and will always give due attention to any Uruguayan proposals on South Atlantic fisheries.
