HC Deb 08 July 1913 vol 55 cc212-3
42. Mr. MORTON

asked the Secretary for Scotland when the Report of the Departmental Committee on State loans to fishermen, etc., will be presented; and whether he is aware that Members representing constituencies interested in the Scottish fisheries are anxious to have an opportunity of discussing this question in the House during this Session?

43. Mr. MUNRO

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware of the disappointment which prevails in fishing circles in Scotland with regard to the delay of the Commission which is considering the question of State loans to fishermen in issuing their Report; whether he can now make a definite statement with regard to the date of its issue and whether, in particular, he will endeavour to secure that it shall be issued in time to admit of its discussion on the second day to be devoted to the Scottish Estimates?


In answer to this question and the next, I cannot add anything to the answers which I gave to my hon. Friends on this subject last month.
