HC Deb 20 February 1934 vol 286 cc156-7
3. Lord SCONE

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether it is the intention of the Government to introduce, during the present Session, legislation relating to salmon fishing in Scotland?


My right hon. Friend regrets that it will not be possible to proceed with legislation on this subject during the present Session. Discussions with a view to early legislation are pro- ceeding with various representative bodies concerned.


Can the hon. Gentleman assure the House that, if any such legislation is drafted, it will be comprehensive, consolidating legislation and not merely legislation by reference?


In all legislation an effort is made to make it simple of understanding.
