HC Deb 28 February 1890 vol 341 c1509

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty if his attention has been called to the fact that, by reason of frequent explosions of torpedoes in the River Medway, the fish are destroyed in large quantities, and that the results of the trade of the freemen fishermen, secured to them by Act of Parliament, are seriously damaged; and if steps can be taken to remedy this?


(who replied) said: The attention of the First Lord of the Admiralty had not been drawn to any extensive destruction of fish by torpedo explosions in the Medway.
