HC Deb 16 February 1893 vol 8 c1576
DR. MACGREGOR (Inverness-shire)

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland, considering that the Crown rights to the salmon fisheries of the Highland lochs, rivers, and estuaries have been alienated, what course does the Government propose to adopt in order to recover, for the use of the people, a share of this natural food supply?


I have informed the House what steps the Scotch Office has taken in order to represent to the Treasury the urgent importance of stopping further alienation of Crown rights to individuals. That is all that can be done without legislation.
