§ MAJOR ANSTRUTHER-GRAY (St. Andrews Burghs)
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland if his attention has been drawn to complaints made to the Fishery Board for Scotland of the recent presence of certain trawling vessels within the prohibited area of the Firth of Forth oil the Anstruther and Cellardyke coasts; and if he can give an assurance that preventive measures will promptly be taken against any 791 infraction of the bye-laws of the Fishery Board.
§ THE SECRETARY FOR SCOTLAND (Mr. SINCLAIR,) Forfarshire
Instructions have been given that every effort should be made to put a stop to the illegal trawling complained of by the hon. Member.
