HC Deb 05 March 1906 vol 153 c97
* MR. ASHLEY (Lancashire, Blackpool)

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether ho proposes to take any steps, by legislation or otherwise, to remove the disability attaching to English trawlers, who are prevented from fishing inside a line drawn from Corsewall Point, in the county of Wigtown, to the Mull of Cantyre, in the County of Argyll, and in other bays on the Scotch coast, while foreign trawlers are free to do so.


It is not proposed at present to consider any action in reference to trawling within these waters, as an appeal which has a bearing upon this subject is now pending in the High Court of Justiciary.
