HC Deb 02 March 1871 vol 204 c1166

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether it is the intention of the Government to carry into effect the recommendations of the Select Committee on Irish Fisheries of 1867, as well as those contained in the Report of the Inspectors of Irish Fisheries for 1869, and the recommendations of the Commissioners dated the 13th of August 1870, recently published for the improvement of that branch of industry?


, in reply, said, the recommendations contained in the Reports referred to by the hon. Member had been under the consideration of the Irish Government. The last Report, that of the 13th of August, 1870, had only just been issued, and therefore there had not yet been time to give it the attention which it deserved. There was one point in connection with the subject now under the consideration of the Law Officers of Ireland, and when they gave their opinion upon, it it was his intention to communicate with the Treasury, to ascertain whether any further assistance should be given to the Irish fisheries.
