asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when he expects to announce his decision on the future of the White Fish Authority and the Herring Industry Board; and whether he will give an indication of how the new organisation will be financed.

We have received a number of comments from organisations in the fishing industry on the consultative document recently circulated by fisheries departments about a new body to replace the authority and the board. The Government are now assessing the comments and we will announce our decisions on the issues involved, including finance, as soon as possible.
