HC Deb 02 June 1874 vol 219 cc852-3

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Why the Report of the Inspectors of Irish Fisheries for the year 1873, which, according to the Act 5 and 6 Vic, c. 106, s. 112, should be presented to Parliament within twenty-one days from the commencement of the present Session, has not as yet been issued?


, in reply, said, that, as he had stated last month, the delay was occasioned by the difficulties which the Inspectors of Irish Fisheries had experienced in obtaining from the Boards of Conservators their Reports, which were published in connection with the general Report of the Inspectors. Since Notice had been given of the hon. Member's Question he had telegraphed to Dublin to ascertain when the Report was likely to be presented, and he had been informed that it had been for some time in the hands of the printers, and he trusted that it would be in the hands of hon. Members in a few days.
