HC Deb 22 March 1907 vol 171 c1276
MR. R. DUNCAN (Lanarkshire, Govan)

To ask the Prime Minister if it is intended that the action or inquiry in regard to fishing rights on rivers, lakes, and lochs, and on the sea coast, which is now contemplated, is to be extended to England.

(Answered by Sir H. Campbell-Bannerman.) No action or inquiry of the sort alluded to by the hon. Member has come within my knowledge. I suppose what he has in his mind is the answer given by my right hon. friend the Lord Advocate on the 12th of this month, in which he said that the whole question of fishing rights in Scotland was receiving the attention of the Government. That is so, but the matter has not yet assumed a definite shape, and there is no present intention of taking action with regard to English fishing rights.
