§ Mr. James Johnson
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, what communications he has received from the Director General of the European Free Trade Association regarding the working party set up to examine the fisheries policy of its members; and what reply he has sent.
§ Mr. Hoy
There has been no occasion for the Secretary-General of the European Free Trade Association to communicate with my right hon. Friend on this subject. The Working Party on Fish reports to the Association's permanent Council, which is made up of representatives of all the member-countries. Consideration of the fisheries policies of E.F.T.A. member-countries is outside the Working Party's present terms of reference.
