HC Deb 01 February 2000 vol 343 c578W
Mr. Soames

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what assessment he has made of the impact the cut in fisheries grant-in-aid in West Sussex will have on sea trout runs in the Western Rother, Arun and Adur rivers. [107873]

Mr. Morley

It is for the Environment Agency to determine its spending priorities for 2001–02 in the light of the planned £1.5 million reduction in Grant-in-Aid in England. It is not possible for me to predict how the cut is likely to affect sea trout runs in the West Sussex area.
