Fisheries: Bankruptcy

Volume 461: debated on Thursday 21 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many and what proportion of fishermen were declared bankrupt in (a) Cornwall, (b) the South West and (c) the UK in each year since 1979. (144237)

My Department does not hold the information requested. Although data on the number of individuals filing for bankruptcy are collected, these are not at a sufficient level of detail to allow for numbers of fishermen to be identified.
