§ 34. Mr. H. STEWART
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps it is proposed to take in view of the petitions addressed to the Fishery Board with regard to ring-net fishing in the Firth of Forth?
§ Mr. SKELTON
This matter has been raised from time to time during recent years, and the position is that hitherto the Fishery Board have not been satisfied that there is sufficient ground for restricting ring-net fishing in the Firth of Forth. The question is, however, being further examined by the Board in the light of recent representations from the Scottish Herring Producers' Association.
