COUNCILS in the South West are facing a hefty levy from a new fisheries quango after the River Severn was reclassified as 'sea'. Local leaders are furious that they could be facing a - coast tax' from the Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority, set up by the last Government to take over monitoring of the fishing industry.
I think the council's response to the latest 'stealth' tax under the guise of IFCA's levy should read something like 'Sod off'. Surely it makes sense to tax the councils in areas that take the fish out in the first place.
