HC Deb 23 March 1903 vol 119 c1468
MR. CLANCY (Dublin Co., N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been drawn to the injuries recently inflicted by trawlers on the nets of long-line fishermen off the coast of North Dublin; and whether any steps have been or will be taken to inquire whether in this instance the law has been violated; and, if so, to secure that the guilty parties shall be made amenable.


Four prosecutions are at present pending in respect of alleged infringements of the by-laws prohibiting trawling in these waters.
