§ MR. THOMAS ELLIS (Merionethshire)
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether any hydrographical survey of Cardigan Bay has been made since that of 1836–9; whether a resurvey of Cardigan Bay is being, or soon will be, undertaken; and whether notice of future re-surveys can be given to the Sea Fisheries Committees which will be formed under "The Sea Fisheries Act, 1888"?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Lord G. HAMILTON,) Middlesex, Ealing
Instructions were given last month for a re-survey of Cardigan Bay being undertaken this summer, no complete survey having been made of that 394 locality since 1838. The Admiralty will be glad to afford information to the Sea Fisheries Committees as to any surveys that take place or are contemplated round the coasts of the United Kingdom, and for that object the Hydrographer will receive instructions to acquaint the Board of Trade with the surveys that are proceeding.
