To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on the present state of the Northumberland fishing industry.

The Northumberland industry involves a wide range of stocks including shellfish, salmon and white fish such as cod, haddock and whiting. Catch levels are down this year because of bad weather and because of some variations in stock levels. But prices are holding up well.
