A Foreign Office spokesman has said there's still no agreed solution to the Icelandic fishing dispute. But a NATO spokesman in Paris said earlier that fishery exports from member-countries of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation were hopeful that a compromise might be found. Our special correspondent in Iceland says the most discussed proposal there is that Britain should recognise a six-mile limit -- plus a six-mile fishing zone with certain rights for countries who traditionally fish the waters. Meanwhile, British trawlers are continuing to head towards the coast of Iceland. One of our cameramen was at Hull today, when two trawlers were setting off on the early morning tide on the thousand mile voyage to the Icelandic fishing grounds. These will be among the last vessels to reach Iceland before the new limit operates on Monday. Their skippers carry sealed orders naming the secret points at which they will join other trawlers and protection vessels.
