§ MR. BERNARD KELLY (Donegal, S.)
asked the Chief Secretery to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether it is a fact that, on the 10th May, a memorial was forwarded by the fishermen of St. John's Point and Inver districts, county Donegal, to the Inspectors of Irish Fisheries, praying for an inquiry 313 into the trawling in Donegal, Inver, and Killybeys Bays; and, whether any steps have been taken with the view of rectifying the grievances complained of by the memorialists; and, if not, whether the Government will urge upon the proper authorities the desirability of prompt action in the matter?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. JOHN MORLEY) (Newcastle-on-Tyne)
The inquiry in which the hon. Member is interested will form one of a series on the same subject which the Inspectors of Fisheries intend to hold as soon as ever their engagements will permit of their doing so.
