asked the Minister of Agriculture, in view of the setting up of the West Wales River Board, how far it is possible for the coracle fishermen on the River Teifi to apply for a limited number of fresh licences for salmon fishing.

The by-law regulating coracle fishing on the River Teifi will continue in force when the Fishery Board's functions are taken over by the South West Wales River Board. Any amendment of the by-law would be a matter for the River Board, subject to confirmation by me.

Is it possible for any kind of inquiry to be held as a result of representations in the district?

I think that any statement would have to be made to the River Board before it came to my Department.
