§ Considered in Committee.
§ (In the Committee.)1612
§ (12.10.) MR. T. M. HEALY (Longford, N.)
Between now and Report would the hon. Member who has the Bill in charge consider the question of limiting it to Lough Neagh? It would be undesirable that the police should have these powers over every river and lake in Ireland. It is n fact, I believe, that the pollen is confined to this one particular district in Ireland.
§ MR. MACARTNEY (Antrim, S.)
I have no objection to the suggestion of the hon. Member; but I should think such a provision unnecessary, as pollen is only fished in this one lake, though I believe it is to be found in one or two other places.
§ MR. T. M. HEALY
It seems to me undesirable to give policemen power to go rampaging all over the country on the pretence that they are looking for pollen. Will the hon. Member consider the matter before the Report?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. MADDEN, Dublin University)
I will consider the question of limiting the operation of the Bill before the Report stage.
§ Bill reported, as amended; to be considered upon Thursday.
