HC Deb 08 June 1995 vol 261 c310W
18. Mr. Cyril D. Townsend

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what steps he is taking to ensure that stocks of fish are properly protected in the future. [25830]

Mr. Jack

Ensuring the sustainable exploitation of fish stocks in such a way that the livelihoods of this and future generations of fisheries are protected is one of my main priorities. A combination of R and D, currently running at £6.5 million a year, and strong enforcement of fishery rules will help to protect fish stocks for the future.
