Report of the Remembrancer.
The Committee received a report of the Remembrancer relative to the Agriculture Bill and Fisheries Bill.
The Agriculture Bill:
The Agriculture Bill has widely been welcomed by the National Union of Farmers. Although the Bill has no major impact upon the City of London Corporation, it is of some interest to the City in relation to the Open Spaces that it manages.
The Fisheries Bill:
Members were informed that this related to catches by fishing vessels, licences for such vessels and fines for those catching more than their quota.
A Member asked whether Shellfish were covered by the Fisheries Bill. The Remembrancer responded that Shellfish were not part of the catch quota covered by the bill.
RESOLVED – that the Committee note the report.
