HC Deb 27 August 1895 vol 36 c890

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether, seeing Her Majesty's ship Reynard was stationed at Stornoway during the month of June, he will state why she only visited Loch Roag on 27th June last in response to complaints of illegal trawling, made by the fishermen of the Bernera district of the Island of Lewis, on the 8th and 9th of that month?

* THE LORD ADVOCATE (Sir CHARLES PEARSON,) Edinburgh and St. Andrew's Universities

I am informed by the Fishery Board that during the month of June last complaints of illegal trawling in the North and West of Scotland were very numerous, and between 6th and 24th of June the Reynard visited, by special instructions, the following places—namely: Applecross, Glendale (twice), and Kyle of Durness, Sutherlandshire. The vessel proceeded to Loch Roag immediately on her return from Kyle of Durness, where she had been ordered to proceed on 17th June after she had returned from Glendale.
