HC Deb 18 March 1907 vol 171 cc481-2
MR. SUTHERLAND (Elgin Burghs)

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland, in view of the fact that the Norwegian Government has issued orders to all Norwegian trawlers to cease from trawling in the Moray Firth, and warning them that in the event of proceedings being taken against them in Scotland for so trawling they need not expect the support of the Norwegian Government, whether he has now issued orders for the prosecution of Norwegian as well as of cases of British subjects in all contraventions of the Moray Firth by-laws.


No, Sir. It is not possible at present to alter the instructions issued to the authorities in Scotland.
