HC Deb 12 March 1912 vol 35 c1072W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any municipal laws, ordinances, or rules for the regulation of the North Atlantic fisheries have been promulgated since 7th September, 1910?


Yes, Sir; the Canadian and Newfoundland Governments have made regulations on various points; for instance, the Dominion. Government has regulated the use of cod trap nets and herring trap nets and the length of leader which may be used. If the hon. Member so desires, I shall be happy to let him see the "Gazettes" in the Colonial Office Library.
