HC Deb 19 August 1919 vol 119 cc2162-3W
Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Home Secretary if he is aware that there is considerable dissatisfaction among British deep-sea fishermen at the granting of fishing certificates to persons of alien nationality; and whether he will take steps to prevent the granting of these certificates in the future to other than British-born subjects, except in the case of men who have been on active service with the British forces?


I have been asked to answer this question. The question of the limitation of the grant of certificates of competency as skipper or second hand to candidates of British nationality is under consideration.
