§ Mr. Canavan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he has taken to set up a representative consultative body of anglers in Scotland, as defined in the Salmon and Fresh Water Fisheries (Scotland) Act 1976.
§ Mr. Hugh D. Brown
Consideration of the constitution of this body is well advanced. I have sought the views of various bodies including regional authorities, the Scottish Tourist Board and the Scottish Sports Council on its membership and am still awaiting some replies. I hope to be able to make an announcement at an early date.
