Written answers (Question to Transport)

My Department has no role in providing financial compensation to the fishing sector. The Marine Survey Office of my Department does not become involved with the financial arrangements for individual vessels in order to maintain the necessary separation of commercial and safety considerations. Such matters are within the remit of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM), so the individual concerned should make contact directly with DAFM who are better placed to help with this matter.
