Mrs. Iris Robinson: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what steps her Department has taken on the payment of light dues by the County Down fishing fleet; and whether it has sought the assistance of the Northern Ireland Fishery Harbour Authority in such matters. 
Light dues are a charge levied on commercial shipping to fund the activities of the general lighthouse authorities and the provision of aids to navigation. We continue to believe that such aids should be paid for by those that use them and not the general taxpayer. We therefore have no plans to abolish light dues levied on the fishing industry and have not sought advice from the Northern Ireland Fishery Harbour Authority on this matter.
