Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Graeme Dey

What initial feedback are you getting from local authorities? Are they saying, “Yeah, that’s fine—that seems sensible”, “Help!” or a mix of the two?



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Graeme Dey

Could you clarify something for me? We are talking about local authorities’ role. Are you satisfied that all local authorities have the necessary expertise to grasp the interaction that they need to have with the national marine plan? If they do not, how do they acquire it?



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Graeme Dey

Could you summarise how the marine plan will get us to where we need to go on aquaculture, given the contentious nature of the subject and the impact that aquaculture has on the areas in which it is located?



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Graeme Dey

We have covered wild salmon.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Graeme Dey

Thank you. That would be useful.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Graeme Dey

Thank you. At the risk of going off at a slight tangent, I will continue that theme. Marine Scotland has done some work on how migratory fish might be affected by the electromagnetic fields that cables from offshore wind turbines generate. As I understand it, that work is inconclusive, but perhaps I am wrong. How will you proceed on that?



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Graeme Dey

Will the plan provide sufficient reassurance to the oil and gas sector? Our witnesses felt strongly enough about the cabling issue to raise it with us.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Graeme Dey

To summarise, you are saying that common sense would be applied.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Graeme Dey

This absolutely follows on from the previous discussion. We took evidence from the oil and gas sector some months ago about its concerns around the fixing of pipelines on the seabed. We were told that, for safety reasons, pipelines are secured using large rocks, which may not occur naturally in those areas. Originally, it was suggested rocks could not be placed in such areas, and the sector expressed concern about that. Therefore, the question arises as to how the pipelines could be fixed safely to protect their integrity and ensure that they are not a danger to fishing. If a pipeline has already been fixed in that way, is there an expectation that that would need to be altered and the requirement applied retrospectively?



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Graeme Dey

I absolutely endorse that. We should write to the ministers, particularly about the fair trade aspect, as the Government and the country have taken a strong position on that. We want to be reassured that such things are considered in the drafting of SSIs.
