Fisheries: Quotas

Volume 464: debated on Monday 15 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what estimate he has made of the fishing opportunities available for UK vessels in 2008; and if he will make a statement. (157274)

No such estimates have been made. The second instalment of the scientific advice from the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES), covering a number of stocks of importance to the UK, is not due to be published until later this month. We do not expect the Commission proposals for these and other relevant stocks to appear until late November.
