HC Deb 27 June 1910 vol 18 c684

asked the Chief Secretary if he will state how many of His Majesty's ships are engaged in the task of endeavouring to keep foreign trawlers at the distance from the Irish coast prescribed by statute?


Two of His Majesty's ships are detailed by the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty for the protection of Irish fisheries. The "Helga," belonging to the Department of Agriculture is also employed for this purpose, and the Congested Districts Board's steamer "Granuaile" gives some help.
