HC Deb 18 March 1907 vol 171 c422

To ask the Secretary for Scotland whether, in view of the fact that the Scottish bay known by the name of the Moray Firth is specifically referred to in an Act of Parliament (1889) as the waters between the headlands known as Duncan by Head and Rattray Point, a distance of seventy-five and three-quarter miles, he will say whether any trawlers of foreign nations, other than the Grimsby-Norwegians, have ever fished there since June, 1903.

(Answered by Mr. Sinclair.) In 1903 nine trawlers and 1904 six trawlers were seen flying flags other than that of Norway, but during each of the three subsequent years only two have been seen flying a flag other than Norwegian.
