§ Mr. William Wilson
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what study he has made of the report by angling experts, details of which have been sent to him, concerning the disappearance of roach; whether he is aware that information about fish management and disease is not exchanged between his Department and river authorities; and if he will remedy this.
§ Mr. John Mackie
The Ministry's fisheries scientists have studied the report and are in close touch with the Trent River Authority who prepared it.
So far as the other parts of the Question are concerned, there is a constant exchange of information between our laboratory, the River Authorities and others concerned with freshwater fisheries. If my hon. Friend has particulars of any difficulties I shall gladly look into them.
