§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware that the number of prosecutions for illegal trawling increased last year to 131, as compared with thirty-eight, the highest previous record; and, seeing that this points to a large increase in the number of persons who occupy themselves in destroying the means of livelihood of the line fishermen, will he state when the new sea police cruiser which was promised some time since is likely to be placed at the disposal of the Fishery Board for Scotland.
§ MR. SINCLAIR
I must refer my hon. friend to the reply given yesterday to the hon. Member for St. Andrews Burghs.
