HC Deb 11 March 1994 vol 239 c436W
Mr. Beggs

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what steps he will take to ensure that no conflict of interest arises where a commercial fisherman holds a licence to fish, a dealers' licence to buy and sell and a bailiff's warrant to enforce the Fisheries Acts.

Mr. Ancram

Powers contained in the Fisheries Act (Northern Ireland) 1966 will be invoked as necessary should such a conflict of interest arise. The Act empowers the Fisheries Conservancy Board for Northern Ireland to revoke licences or object to the issue of a bailiff's warrant.
