§ Mr. Gill
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, pursuant to his answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Buckingham (Mr. Bercow) of 17 June 1999,Official Report, columns 216-18, on the Common Fisheries Policy, if alternative management measures include (a) the amendment of the existing quota and (b) the introduction of a permit system. 
§ Mr. Morley
I have placed in the Library of the House copies of the research objectives of the study to which he refers. These include evaluation of possible adjustment of the operation of the quota system. This is not intended to affect quota share. It does not include a permit system.
