HC Deb 15 August 1889 vol 339 c1332
MR. MARJORIBANKS (Berwickshire)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether, since the discussion which took place in December last on the Estimates, the position of the officers under the Scotch Fishery Board has been under the consideration of the Treasury; and, whether it is the intention of the Government, in view of the many and various new duties that have of recent years been put upon them, to sanction some increase to their salaries and allowances?


In reply to the right hon. Gentleman, the Memorial of the Fishery Board Officers is under the consideration of the Secretary for Scotland; but in view of legislation which may affect their duties materially in the future, he is not yet in a position to make any recommendation to the Treasury.
