§ Mr. WEIR
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he could now see his way to approach the signatories to the North Sea Fisheries Convention, and other European Powers interested, with a view to some understanding under which it should be binding on all the Powers to 790 refrain from fishing in waters such as the Moray Firth, when the Power exercising dominion over the adjacent shore had found it expedient to close such waters against trawlers of its own nationality?
The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. T. McKin-non-Wood)
His Majesty's Government see no reason to alter the decision stated in the reply given to a question on April 27th last.
The hon. Member must not interpolate a speech on the question. He is entitled to ask his question, and must take his answer.
