§ Mr. Alex Carlile
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what representations he has received concerning funding of the South Wales Sea Fisheries Committee; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Hague
I have received a number of representations about the funding of the South Wales Sea Fisheries Committee; I have also met representatives of the committee.
Sea fisheries committees are committees of local government, and their funding arrangements are a matter for member authorities of each committee.
