HC Deb 18 October 2001 vol 372 cc1270-1W
Mr. Hancock

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what plans she has for reducing the waste produced from salmon farming; and if she will make a statement. [5282]

Mrs. Liddell

[holding answer 19 July 2001]: I have been asked to reply.

This is predominantly a matter for the devolved Administration in Scotland. I understand however that a range of initiatives are underway to ensure that salmon farming is undertaken sustainably, with regard both to economic benefit and effect on the environment.
