HC Deb 31 October 1906 vol 163 cc1118-9

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether he has yet consulted with the Law Officers of the Crown as to the steps to be taken to check illegal trawling by foreign trawlers, in view of the unanimous decision of the Judges of the High Court of Justiciary at Edinburgh, in respect of the Moray Firth foreign trawler's case.


The subject is under the consideration of the Government, and at present I cannot with any further advantage add to the information which is at present available to the public.
