Fishing: North Devon

Volume 692: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What effect a 12-mile Welsh territorial water boundary has had on the north Devon fishing fleet. [HL3794]

In addition to EU or UK legislation, the fleet is subject to those rules introduced by the Welsh authorities that apply exclusively in their own waters. As far as I am aware, the only supplementary legislation of this type applies to scallop dredging and was introduced following full consultation with the interests concerned.
