§ MR. T. R. BUCHANAN (Aberdeenshire, E.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether fishing boats are to pay fees for registration and other purposes under Section 3 of the Merchant Shipping (Mercantile Marine Fund) Bill?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE
It is not intended that the fees mentioned in Clause 3 and in the First Schedule of the Bill should be payable in respect of the registration of fishing boats as such. I will take care that this point is made clear in the Bill.
