HC Deb 23 March 1869 vol 194 c2003

said, he wished to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Home Department, What progress has been made in the preparation of a Bill to amend the Salmon Fishery Laws of 1861 and 1865; and when he proposes to introduce such Bill?


said, in reply, that since a deputation had waited on him upon this subject he had been the fortunate recipient of much correspondence relating to it, and had been endeavouring to mature a measure for the amendment of the Salmon Fishery Laws of 1861 and 1865. At present he could give no more satisfactory answer than that he would endeavour to lay a Bill on the table at an early period.
