§ 20. Mr. Sproat
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on renegotiation of the common fisheries policy.
§ Mr. Peart
As I said earlier in reply to the hon. Member for Mid-Oxon (Mr. Hurd) and others, on 15th April the Council of Agricultural Ministers approved my request for an urgent reappraisal of the common fisheries policy to be undertaken in preparation for possible changes in the Law of the Sea following the current United Nations Conference.
