§ Mr. CLOUGH
asked the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, whether he is aware that the Duke of Northumberland imposes a £5 licence-fee upon every fishing boat fishing within three miles of the coast throughout the length of that county; and whether he is prepared to propose a time limit, say of 14 years, after which this monopoly shall be recovered for the fishing industry concerned, or for the State?
§ Sir E. STRACHEY
We have no official information on this subject. There is no intention of proposing legislation respecting it.
