HC Deb 16 March 1888 vol 323 c1432
MR. THORBURN (Peebles and Selkirk)

asked the Lord Advocate, If the Fishing Bill promised by the Government will be introduced before Easter; and, if not, looking to the great interest taken in the matter in many districts in Scotland, whether he can give a definite promise when the Bill will be introduced and printed?

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

The Bill referred to cannot be introduced before Easter; but I hope it may be on Parliament re-assembling.
