HC Deb 07 March 1887 vol 311 c1405
MR. MARK STEWART (Kirkcud bright)

asked the Lord Advocate, Whether it is the intention of the Government to bring in a Salmon Fishery Bill for Scotland this Session?

THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. H. A. MACDONALD) (Edinburgh and St. Andrews Universities)

It was stated on the 17th of February, in answer to the hon. Member for Peebles and Selkirk (Mr. Thorburn), that the Amendment of the Tweed Acts was under consideration, with the view of making the law as nearly as possible the same for the whole country. I hope that a Bill to amend and consolidate the law will be brought in soon.

DR. CLARK (Caithness)

asked, Whether the Government, pending legislation, would suspend the granting of any further charter or lease of Crown fisheries?


The hon. Member must give me Notice of that Question.
