5. Annex 1 Consultation Questions

Q1b: Please provide reasons for your answer.

Q2a: Do you agree that the landings target included in the economic link licence condition should in general be 55 per cent?

Q2b: Please provide reasons for your answer.

Q3a: Do you agree that there should be transitional arrangements in relation to landings of pelagic fish?

Q3b: Please provide reasons for your answer.
