§ MR. POWER (Waterford, E.)
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland if he can state the number and the names of the gunboats at present employed in the protection of the fisheries off the Scotch coasts; and can he state the number and the names of the gunboats supplied by the Admiralty for this purpose.
§ THE SECRETARY FOR SCOTLAND (Mr. SINCLAIR,) Forfarshire
The following four vessels are cruisers under the Fishery Board:—" Vigilant," " Brenda," " Minna," and " Freya." The Admiralty has placed the " Ringdove" at the disposal of the Board for fishery protection and on occasion they grant the temporary services of a vessel for special duty. His Majesty's Ship "Hussar" has been employed this summer at Balta Sound.
