HC Deb 08 June 1842 vol 63 c1386

On the motion that the Salmon Fisheries (Scotland) Bill (No. 2) be re-committed,

Mr. Mackenzie

moved that the report be taken into further consideration that day three months. He objected to different clauses of the bill, which was such a mass of inconsistencies that it could not possibly be carried into practical operation.

Mr. E. Ellice,

jun., remarked that the opposition to this measure did not proceed from any parties representing districts likely to be affected by the bill.

Mr. A. Campbell

said, he could refute the hon. Member's observation in his own person. He was personally interested in salmon fisheries, and he was strongly opposed to the bill before the House.

The House divided on the original question:—Ayes 88; Noes 20: Majority 68.
