I would like clarity on whether the other Department is the lead Department and to what extent the Minister of State, Deputy English's Department has direct involvement. I want to reiterate that, from the statistics I have been given, €1 billion of income and 12,000 jobs come directly from angling. I want to stress again that this is vital for anglers, both those in Ireland and those who come to Ireland through the tourism industry. We need to get this right. There are simple solutions that I have been presented with and that make sense to me. I ask that they are taken seriously.
