HC Deb 06 May 1901 vol 93 c764

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, as representing the Secretary for Scotland, whether, at the International Fisheries Conference now being held, efforts will be made to induce the States Signatories of the North Sea Convention, 1882, to allow the sea area off the West Coast of Scotland to be regarded as outside the sea areas controlled by the Convention.


The sea area off the West of Scotland never has been within the sea area controlled by the Convention, and accordingly no efforts of the kind indicated seem to be called for.
