§ Mr. McQuarrie
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is yet in a position to announce the names of the Scottish members who will serve on the new Sea Fish Industry Authority established by the Fisheries Bill; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Younger
I am not yet in a position to announce names. In parallel with the other Fisheries Ministers, I shall shortly be inviting the principal organisations involved in the sea fish industry in Scotland to suggest the names of suitable people for appointment to the Sea Fish Industry Authority to represent the industry. The announcement of appointments to the authority will be made as soon as possible after the enactment of the Fisheries Bill.
