MR. MAC NEILL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that, by 5 and 6 Vic. c. 106, sec. 112, the Inspectors of Fisheries are, before the 31st January in each year, to make a Report on the Fisheries of the preceding year, and a copy is to be laid before Parliament within three weeks after the commencement of sitting; when will this Report be laid upon the Table; and why have the provisions of the Statute not been complied with?
§ MR. JACKSON
The provisions of the Act are, I believe, as stated in the first question. It has not in recent years been found possible to give the full information desirable and up to date 471 within the time mentioned, and an extension of time has been allowed. The Report will be presented as soon as possible.
