HC Deb 16 May 1892 vol 4 c965

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether it has come to his knowledge that the fishermen of Ringsend, and other fishermen engaged in trawling off the Irish coast, have suffered very serious injury during the present season from the manner in which their nets are being driven into and torn by steam trawlers from the French and English ports; and whether he will take some steps to afford protection to the poor men engaged in this industry?


The Inspectors of the Irish Fisheries report that no complaints of the nature indicated in the question have been received by them.
