HC Deb 27 March 1893 vol 10 c1173
SIR MARK STEWART (Kirkcudbright)

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether the Government propose to introduce a Bill this Session to give effect to the unanimous recommendation of the Committee on the Solway White Fishing? In asking this, I may explain that I understand a certain number of Amendments are being drafted in respect of the Bill now before the House.


The Government cannot introduce another Fishery Bill until that now before the House is disposed of. If the hon. Member will introduce a Bill on the Sparling Fishery which will work in with the Deep Sea Fisheries Bill, under which the counties bordering on the Solway Firth will be included in the South West Fishery Committee, and will help to return a member to the Fishery Board, the Government will give it favourable consideration.
