  • Description

    THE 16-NATION EUROPEAN FISHERIES CONFERENCE RESUMED IN LONDON TODAY (WEDNESDAY) WHEN THE DELEGATION HEARD DETAILED GOVERNMENT REACTION TO A COMPROMISE DRAFT PLAN ON THE KEY ISSUE OF FISHING LIMITS.

    A MAJORITY OF THE DELEGATIONS HAD AGREED TO RECOMMEND THE PLAN TO THEIR GOVERNMENTS FOR CONSIDERATION BEFORE THE CONFERENCE ADJOURNED ON JANUARY 17.

    THE PLAN INVOLVES A CONVENTION, COMING INTO FORCE AFTER JUNE THIS YEAR WHEREBY EACH COUNTRY WOULD HAVE A THREE-MILE TERRITORIAL LIMIT; A SIX-MILE EXCLUSIVE FISHERY ZONE; AND A FURTHER SIX-MILE FISHERY BELT IN WHICH THOSE COUNTRIES THAT HAVE TRADITIONALLY FISHED COULD CONTINUE TO DO SO BY AGREEMENT.

    WHEN THE CONFERENCE ADJOURNED, AUSTRIA, BELGIUM, FRANCE, WEST GERMANY, IRELAND, ITALY, LUXEMBOURG, THE NETHERLANDS, PORTUGAL, SPAIN, SWITZERLAND AND BRITAIN WERE IN FAVOUR OF THE PLAN, WITH ICELAND AND NORWAY AGAINST.

    DENMARK AGREED FOR HERSELF BUT MADE RESERVATIONS REGARDING THE FAROES AND GREENLAND. AND SWEDEN ALSO MADE SOME RESERVATIONS BUT IS THOUGHT LIKELY TO APPROVE LATER.

    THE RESUMED CONFERENCE, EXPECTED TO LAST A WEEK, WILL ALSO DISCUSS THE VITAL PROBLEM OF ACCESS TO MARKETS.

    IT IS BEING PRESIDED OVER BY MR PETER THOMAS, BRITISH MINISTER OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS.
