HC Deb 07 November 1906 vol 164 c556
MR. CATHCART WASON (Orkney and Shetland)

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether, in view of the damage done by trawlers destroying fishing grounds within the three-mile limit and the expense and difficulty of obtaining convictions, he will prohibit the sale of nets, that may have been forfeited as part of the punishment, at distant places where the offenders can buy their nets back practically without competition.


There are practical difficulties in the way of removal of nets, but I am in communication with the: Fishery Board on the subject of the hon. Member's Question.
