HC Deb 18 April 1855 vol 137 cc1544-5

Order for Second Reading read.


said, he did not mean to enter into details with regard to this Bill, which also stood for a second reading; but he would just state that it had for its object, not as had been said, the destruction of the salmon fry, but its protection. For the present he should withdraw the Bill; but as long as he had a seat in that House he should never rest contented until both as regarded the inland fisheries and the sea-coast fisheries his constituents and the whole population of Ireland were placed in the same position that they would occupy if they resided in England or in America.

Order fur second reading discharged.
