asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will now give grant aid to the Warkworth harbour commissioners in respect of works carried out on the fish quay at Amble and to the Amble fishermen in respect of an ice plant.

As the hon. Member knows, the decision on grant aid towards the fish quay and ice plant works at Amble harbour cannot be made until there is an acceptable commitment to the repair of the protecting north pier breakwater. I understand that the Department of the Environment is currently considering an application from Alnwick district council for assistance towards a major repair scheme for the breakwater.
