HC Deb 06 July 1904 vol 137 c795
MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the water bailiffs at Ballynahinch, county Down, continually interfere with the rights of individuals fishing either with rod or line; and will he give instructions for their interference to cease.


There have, I believe, been several cases of interference by bailiffs with persons fishing legally with rod and line at this place. Further inquiries are being made in the matter by the new Department, the result of which I will communicate to my hon. friend.
