HC Deb 10 July 1900 vol 85 cc1125-6
MR. JAMES O'CONNOR) (Wicklow, W.

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will favourably consider the request of the fishermen of Arklow for the repeal of the laws prohibiting drift-net fishing between sunrise and sunset, as stated in their petition presented to this House.


If a copy of the petition referred to be forwarded to the Department of Agriculture and Technical Instruction, the matter will be considered.
