HC Deb 22 March 1955 vol 538 cc1854-5
27. Mr. Willis

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in view of the decision of Sheriff Middleton on 29th November, 1954, in the case of a wildfowler charged with shooting wildfowl in Aberlady Bay, he will take steps to make possible the prohibition or restriction of shooting on the foreshore of any Scottish nature reserve.

Mr. Henderson Stewart

An appeal has been taken to the High Court against the Sheriffs decision. The court has reserved judgment, and it would, therefore, be improper for me to comment on the case.
