asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food why he is not yet ready to approve grant aid for urgently needed work to repair Wark-worth harbour at Amble, Northumberland.

:The Warkworth harbour commissioners have been advised that consideration of their application for a grant under section 2 of the Fisheries Act 1955, must be deferred pending consideration by the Alnwick district council of a scheme of work to the northern breakwater which is in a poor state of repair and which protects the fish quay and the harbour generally. In the meantime we have agreed with the harbour commissioners that they may carry out some work which they wish to undertake immediately without prejudice to their grant application.
