Fisheries: Devon

Volume 461: debated on Thursday 14 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what consideration he has given a Devon-based scheme for the inshore, under 10 metre fleet. (142669)

Future management arrangements for the inshore fleet are being considered in the context of the UK’s current quota management change programme. Issues being examined include access to quota and fleet capacity: the case for region-specific measures, for example in terms of localised management, may also be addressed.
