asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what he estimates to be the annual fish consumption of the seal colony on the Fame Islands; what representations he has received in favour of a cull to reduce the numbers of seals on these islands; and whether he proposes to authorise a cull.

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave him to a similar Question on 6th May 1975. I regret that no estimates are available of the annual fish consumption of the seal colony of the Fame Islands.
