Sir David Steel

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he is taking to implement recommendation No. 33 of the report of the Scottish Salmon strategy task force.[20816]

Mr. Baldry

I have been asked to reply.

My right hon. Friend, the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, has received a copy of the task force report. This Department will be closely involved in formulating the Government's formal response to the recommendations affecting fisheries in England. However, no decisions will be taken until the consultation process is complete.
