HC Deb 13 March 1896 vol 38 c880
MR. J. E. GORDON (Elgin and Nairn)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, with reference to the five trawlers overhauled by H. M. S. Redwing, off Lossie-mouth, on the 3rd of March, and also the other three trawlers seen on that date to the westward, whether, on investigation, he is prepared to take proceedings for breach of the law?

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

Ten trawlers were observed working in the Moray Firth on the 2nd and 3rd instant by the Commander of H. M. S. Redwing, including I have no doubt those referred to in the Question. They have been reported to the legal authorities for prosecution.
