HC Deb 10 March 1898 vol 54 cc1246-7

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland has he seen a resolution passed by the Clones Town Commissioners asking that the Local Government Bill should contain a provision to reform the constitution of the Irish Salmon Fishery Boards at present possessing an undue proportion of ex-officio members; also asking that the Royal Irish Constabulary be required to patrol all breeding streams during the close season; and can he give any assurance that these suggestions shall have attention?


Representations have been made to the effect stated in the Question, but I can only repeat what I have already stated, that the matter would appear to be one proper to be discussed when the Local Government Bill is under consideration by the House, and that I am not prepared, at present, to make any statement upon it.
