asked the Secretary of State for Transport what representations he has received about the impact of the extension of light dues on fishing vessels.

Some 57 representative bodies were consulted about our proposals. Written and oral representations were made by 30 bodies, and my noble Friend, the Minister for Aviation and Shipping, received a delegation from the National Federation of Fishermen's Organisations, the Scottish Fishermen's Federation and the Cornish Inshore Fishermen's Federation.
