HC Deb 21 August 1894 vol 29 c154
MR. GILHOOLY (Cork Co., W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the injurious effect trawling in Bantry Bay has on the fishing industry, and whether he will take any steps to abolish it?


The Inspectors of Fisheries held a local inquiry in May last into the question of trawling in Bantry Bay, and, as a result of the inquiry, have made a by-law prohibiting trawling within certain limits in the Bay. The by-law has been submitted for the approval of the Lord Lieutenant in Council.
