HC Deb 23 April 1895 vol 32 c1495
MR. J. W. CROMBIE (Kincardineshire)

I beg to ask the Civil Lord of the Admiralty if he is aware that the movements of H. M. S Jackal, which is at present engaged in sea-police service off the Scotch coast, are frequently announced in advance by the local newspapers, thereby greatly detracting from her efficiency in preventing illegal trawling; and, whether he will take steps to prevent this recurring?


The Admiralty have no information on this point. The Jackal is at the disposal of the Scotch Fishery Board, and her movements are settled by that Board.
