HC Deb 23 October 1973 vol 861 c1127

Lords Amendment: No. 11, in page 12, line 37, after "plan" insert: or from the processing of white weed so gathered".

10.45 p.m.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.

This is a comparatively small matter. It concerns the white weed processing works in this area. It provides that any loss of livelihood derived from processing white weed, if that white weed was gathered within the limits of deviation, is compensatable on the same conditions as the gathering of the weed or the taking of fish or shellfish.

The white weed industry in the area is said to employ 11 boats, 20 processing workers full-time on shore and up to 100 part-time workers.

Question put and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords amendment agreed to.
