HC Deb 01 June 1908 vol 189 cc1568-9
MR. MOLTENO (Dumfriesshire)

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether, in accordance with the expectations held out at the Annan fishing inquiry in February, 1906, he can see his way to introduce, at an early date, a Bill for the reform of the fishery law dealing with the Solway Firth, and especially to make it clear that whammeling is legal.


The Government will consider this subject with a view to the legislation which my hon. friend suggests. With regard to the second part of the Question, I am informed that whammeling has never been declared illegal.
