HC Deb 18 March 1889 vol 334 cc39-40

asked what were the private interests which the Chief Inspector of Fisheries on the 3rd of January last stated as likely to oppose successfully a by-law of the Dovey Fishery Board to extend by a fortnight the time for net fishing in the waters within the Board's jurisdiction?


The hon. Member is not quite accurate in stating that the Chief Inspector of Fisheries made any reference to private interests. What he did say was that the views of the fishermen would be much opposed by the more important Fishery Boards, the preservation of whose districts might be affected by further extension of the season for the capture, and consequently the sale, of salmon.
