Fish Marketing

Scotland written question – answered on 27 October 1981.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. McQuarrie asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proposals he has for the marketing of fish to the consumers in Scotland; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Younger: The Government do not have a direct role to play in the marketing of fish. The Sea Fish Industry Authority has a statutory duty to promote the efficiency of the sea fish industry as a whole and a power to promote the marketing and consumption of sea fish. I am confident that the new authority will be paying particular attention to marketing in the next few months.
