HC Deb 25 June 1908 vol 191 c95

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland, in view of the fact that out of 1,103 steam-propelled vessels engaged in the Scottish fisheries last year 287 were engaged in trawling, will he state how this latter figure compares with the number of steam trawlers employed during each of the five preceding years.


The figures are as follows—

1902 275
1903 280
1904 270
1905 266
1906 274
