§ SIR ALBERT ROLLIT (Islington, S.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether it is intended to introduce a Sea Fisheries Bill; and, if so, when, and in which House?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. C. T. RITCHIE,) Croydon
I have carefully considered the representations made for and against a Sea Fisheries Bill, and have come to the conclusion that the case for legislation of a kind similar to that projected last year is very strong. Under these circumstances I propose to ask Parliament to consider the subject, but at present am not in a position to say when, and in which House, a Bill will be introduced.
