HC Deb 21 June 1888 vol 327 cc819-20
MR. A. R. D. ELLIOT (Roxburgh)

asked the Lord Advocate, Whether he still intends to introduce during the present Session a Bill dealing with Scottish Salmon Fisheries?

THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. H. A. MACDONALD) (Edinburgh and St. Andrew's Universities)

Her Majesty's Government have desired, in framing a Bill to deal with the Scottish Salmon Fisheries, to make it a thorough and complete measure. To do this has involved much labour and much correspondence with various parts of the country. The Bill is now practically ready, and it is the intention to introduce it this Session.
