HC Deb 27 November 1906 vol 165 c1444

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is now in a position to state what steps, if any, will be taken to give the Fishery Department power to hold inquiries with the object of changing the close seasons where necessary.


I informed the hon. Member early in the session that I thought some legislation on this subject desirable; but I am not yet in a position to say when it may be possible to introduce such legislation.
