§ MR. R. L. HARMSWORTH (Caithnessshire)
I beg to ask the Secretary 870 for Scotland if he can state when a Fishery Board cruiser last patrolled Dunnet Bay, Caithness; and if he can see his way to give instructions that one of these cruisers patrols these seas with greater constancy than at present to prevent the illegal trawling.
§ THE SECRETARY FOR SCOTLAND (Mr. SINCLAIR,) Forfarshire
No complaints of illegal trawling have been received from Dunnet Bay for some time, and consequently no special visit has been ordered. The fishery cruisers periodically visit the north coast, and care will be taken that the part of the coast referred to by my hon. friend will not be neglected.
