Decision ID: 000265

In June 1993 the 1971 Fund Executive Committee decided that claims relating to loss of income by employees who had suffered reduction in working hours or who had been made redundant from fish processing plants that received most of their supply from salmon farms in the exclusion zone established by the United Kingdom Government should be rejected, since the losses could not be considered as damage caused by contamination and therefore did not fall within the definition of pollution damage.
