§ Mr. Morley
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will list all fishing vessels that have been boarded or called into port as a result of fishing activities in the south-west mackerel box; and if he will give details of any action taken in each case since January.
§ Mr. Curry
A total of 86 fishing vessels were inspected in the south-west mackerel box between 1 February and 4 March. Eight minor infringements were identified and warning letters have been issued to those concerned. Two further infringements are being pursued. It is not our practice to release details of the individual vessels involved.
