To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if she will list the current holders of 10 m and under fishing licences for area VII F and G.

The 10 metre and under licences are general authorities to fish in all appropriate EC waters. All holders of such licences are therefore authorised to fish in area VII F and G. At 1 July 1993 Fisheries Departments had issued 5,193 10 metre and under licences; these could only be listed at disproportionate cost.
