I have no role nor responsibility in the testing of fish for microplastics.  This is a matter for my colleagues the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine and the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage who has responsibility for issues relating to the marine environment, including implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive.
