HC Deb 09 February 1864 vol 173 cc323-4

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether it is his intention to introduce any Bill amending the Salmon Fisheries (England) Act of 1861, and giving extended powers for the preservation of Salmon in fresh and tidal waters?


said, in reply, that a series of questions had been addressed to Fishery Associations and proprietors of fisheries, and until the answers which were now coming in, were received, the Government could not decide whether it would be desirable to propose any amendment of the law during the present Session.
