§ MR. HARMSWORTH
TO ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of the evidence recently laid before the Departmental Committee on the Sea Fisheries of Sutherland and Caithness, as to the injury and damage caused by trawling to the white fishing and the herring fishing in the Moray Firth and the Pentland Firth, the Government will appoint a special Commission to inquire into the whole question of trawling.
§ (Answered by Mr. A. J. Balfour.) I am advised that while the International Inquiry into the whole question of fish supply in the North Sea is proceeding there would seem to be no sufficient reason for the appointment of a special Commission to inquire into the question, of trawling.
