Would the hon. Gentleman not agree that, in view of the savage cut in the white fish and herring subsidies for the ensuing year, it is essential to press on with this project with a view to giving better returns to fishermen as quickly as possible?
Quite obviously, I disagree with the first part of the hon. Gentleman's supplementary question, but we will debate it later. As to the latter part, we have always believed that proper marketing would bring better results, not only to those who catch and sell fish but to the consumers as well.
Would the hon. Gentleman agree that the White Fish Authority has been in existence long enough to have conducted half a dozen market researches? Does he really think that the White Fish Authority is making a worthwhile contribution to the industry?
