§ Mr. Beggs
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if Her Majesty's Government will make urgent representations to the EU Commission for measures to be put in place to safeguard the United Kingdom salmon industry through a minimum import price for salmon entering the United Kingdom market. 
§ Mr. Raymond S. Robertson
In view of the continued depressed state of the European market for farmed salmon, my right hon. Friend wrote to Commissioner Bonino on 22 November asking for the reintroduction of minimum import prices.
I trust that the Commission will respond quickly and positively to this request.
