§ Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on the visit to Russia of the Joint Parliamentary Secretary and on the conclusions he reached in comparing the Russian and British fishing industries, with respect to their scientific developments and their organisations for seagoing marketing distribution and export.
§ Mr. Hoy
A fisheries mission led by myself and including officials, scientists and industry representatives visited the U.S.S.R., between 3rd and 17th September, 1965. The aim was to learn more about the undertakings and research institutions of the Soviet fishing industry and to exchange information on fishery matters.
I am sending a copy of a report on the mission to my hon. and learned Friend.
