Decisión nº: 003277

In October 1997 the 1971 Fund Executive Committee considered a claim by a company that sold angling rights and five angling clubs for loss of income due to a reduction in the sale of day tickets to casual anglers and/or due to club members not having renewed their subscriptions in 1996, both allegedly as a result of the fishing ban imposed by the United Kingdom Government, and as regards the company also for loss of income in other fields of business, such as a fishing school, the provison of accomodation and the sale of food and beverages. Referring to a decision at its 50th session in respect of a similar claim arising from the Sea Empress incident, the Committeee decided that claims for loss of income of the types included in these claims were admissible in principle.
