§ Lord Gallacher
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What role is envisaged for the Sea Fish Industry Authority when the provisions of the Sea Fish (Conservation) Act 1992 are in operation as well as those contained in the Fishing Vessels (Decommissioning) Scheme 1993.
The Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (Earl Howe)
The Government do not envisage an operational role for the Sea Fish Industry Authority, but officials dealing with fleet structure issues draw on the authority's technical expertise from time to time, and these useful contacts will continue.
