asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, pursuant to the reply given to the hon. Member for West Stirlingshire, Official Report, 26th January 1977, column 656, he will now make an announcement about the composition of the consultative body of anglers as defined in the Salmon and Fresh Water Fisheries (Scotland) Act 1976; and what angling organisations have been consulted.

The following is a list of the angling organisations which have been consulted. Apart from the bodies mentioned in the reply I gave to my hon. Friend on 26th January 1977, the Coal Industry Social Welfare Organisation and the Scottish Trades Union Congress have also been consulted for their interests on behalf of angling members. I cannot add at present to my reply of 26th January about the composition of the consultative body.
