Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Weighing of Fisheries Products: Discussion
Mr. Paschal Hayes:
I referred to this in my opening statement. It is regrettable that there was confusion. From my information on the 4 February meeting, which I did not attend, it was made clear to the industry that compliance with the control plan meant that the 5% had to be done on a non-industry-owned, non-industry-operated weighing device. The options were given on the basis that the ownership model was going to change to be compliant with the control plan. That did not happen.
