asked the Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries if he proposes to initiate legislation to provide that all fresh water anglers will pay a licence fee of £2 per person.

The proposal mentioned in the question is one of the recommendations of the Inland Fisheries Commission whose report was recently published. All the recommendations contained in the report are at present under examination in my Department but no decision has yet been taken.
