Written answers (Question to Jobs)

I understand that while my Department has not issued any permits in the last two years in respect of fishermen the Department issued six permits in 2010 and one permit in 2011 in respect of employment in the fishing industry. No such permits issued in 2012 or thus far in 2013.
