§ COLONEL NOLAN (Galway, N.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If the result of the inquiry into the effects of trawling, which was held by the Fishery Commissioners under the Presidency of Sir Thomas Brady, is yet known; and, if the exemption from trawling now enjoyed by the Firth of Forth will be extended wholly or partially to Galway Bay?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. HOLMES) (Dublin University)
(who replied) said: The Inspectors of Fisheries report that they have not yet arrived at a decision with reference to the trawling at Galway pending the result of inquiries now being held into the subject generally in regard to other parts of Ireland. The Inspectors add, however, that in the course of their inquiry at Galway they received no evidence which would, in their opinion, justify the adoption there of such a bye-law as that which is in force with reference to the Firth of Forth.
