HC Deb 19 July 1983 vol 46 cc84-5W
Mr. John Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Wales when the inquiry into the river fishing in Wales completed its hearing; when the inspector's report was received by him; what was the reason for the delay; when he expects to reach and publish his determination on the matter; and if he will give reasons for the delay in reaching a decision.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

The public inquiry into the Welsh water authority's net limitation order and fishery byelaws was held between 6 April and 4 June 1982. The inspector's report was received on 25 February of this year and I hope to make my views known shortly. The time taken to prepare and consider the report has been due to the complexity of the issues involved.
