Marine Fisheries Agency

Volume 458: debated on Thursday 15 March 2007

From 1 April, 2007 the Marine Fisheries Agency (MFA) will be taking on additional marine environmental responsibilities, including licensing and consents work from core-DEFRA and licensing of marine aggregate dredging from the Department for Communities and Local Government.

To better reflect the Agency's extended remit to protect and manage the marine environment, the MFA will change its name to the Marine and Fisheries Agency as of 1 April, 2007.
