§ Major ANSTRUTHER-GRAY
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware of complaints of illegal trawling off the coast of Fife, to the prejudice of local industry; and whether he will take effective steps to prevent further depredations?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
No such complaints have reached me. If information as to cases of illegal trawling, together with the evidence in support of the charge, is furnished to the Fishery Board for Scotland, steps will be taken to secure the clue enforcement of the law.
