asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many applications have been made by skippers for European agricultural guidance and guarantee fund grants for the building of new fishing vessels; and when a decision will be made on these applications.

A total of 71 applications were submitted from the United Kingdom in 1981 for grants from the European agricultural guidance and guarantee fund for the building of fishing vessels. In addition, 28 applications, first considered in 1980, remain eligible for reconsideration. The appropriate regulations require the European Commission to take a decision on these applications by 31 May 1982.
