HC Deb 03 April 1905 vol 144 c131

I beg to ask the Lord-Advocate whether his attention has been directed to the resolution of a recent meeting of Moray Firth fishermen at Buckie with regard to the continued evasion of the by laws passed by the Fishery Board for Scotland closing the Moray Firth against trawlers, and praying His Majesty's Government to give effect without delay to the recommendation of the Fishery Board that all ports in the United Kingdom should be closed against the landing of fish caught by trawlers in the Moray Firth; and, if so, will he state on what ground the Government fail to give effect to the recommendations of the Fishery Board for Scotland.


The Answer to the first part of the hon. Member's Question is in the affirmative. The Secretary for Scotland is in communication with other Departments of the Government concerned in this matter.
