HC Deb 31 March 1994 vol 240 c908W
Mr. Beith

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether, in the context of her consideration of a proposal to postpone the opening date of the north-east coast salmon drift net fishery, she will also consider the proposal made by netsmen that the season should be extended to the end of September.

Mr. Jack

I can confirm that my right hon. Friend has received a request from the National Federation of Fisherman's Organisations to extend the season for the north-east coast salmon drift net fishery if the opening date is postponed; this will, of course, be looked at carefully.
