HC Deb 11 March 1897 vol 47 c494
MR. J. W. CROMBIE (Kincardineshire)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether, seeing that Clause 8 of the Herring Fishery (Scotland) Act 1889, prohibits the landing of fish caught by illegal methods at Scotch ports only, and that a foreign trawler recently found fishing illegally, landed the fish at an English port, Her Majesty's Government, will take steps to amend the law so as to extend the prohibition to any British port?


An Amendment of the law on the lines desired affects England and English ports. It will be necessary for the hon. Member to approach the Board of Trade with reference to any legislation of this nature.
