HC Deb 26 October 1908 vol 194 c1578

To ask the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware that complaints are being made of illegal trawling within the three-mile limit off the east coast of Fife, particularly in St. Andrews Bay; and whether he will take the necessary steps to put an end to these depredations.

(Answered by Mr. Sinclair.) Only one complaint has been received since July, and this was attended to. A cruiser has been continually on the fishing grounds off the Fife coast since the 16th instant with the exception of one day.
