HC Deb 22 July 1957 vol 574 c9
12. Mr. Hayman

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what objections have been lodged with him against the proposed Cornwall Mullet Fishery Byelaw, 1957; and whether he will arrange for a public inquiry to give objectors a full opportunity of making their views known.

Mr. Amory

Objections to the proposed prohibition of shore angling during the winter months at Sennen Cove and St. Ives have been lodged by the Penzance Borough Council, the Cornish Group of Trade Councils, three local angling organisations and five rod and line fishermen.

I intend to arrange for a public local inquiry to be held if the Cornwall Sea Fisheries Committee submits this byelaw to me for confirmation.

Mr. Hayman

Will the Minister bear in mind that his answer will give great satisfaction in West Cornwall, where there seems to be considerable anxiety about this proposed byelaw?
