HC Deb 14 April 1921 vol 140 cc1319-20W

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is aware that the demolition of the wreck of the "Campania," off the East Coast of Scotland, by means of explosives, is seriously interfering with the local fishing industry; and if, in view of the fact that the wreck does not constitute a danger or hindrance to shipping, its further demolition can be postponed to a season at which the work will not endanger the livelihood of the local fishermen?


I am informed by the Fishery Board for Scotland that they have received no complaints from fishermen. The Board are inquiring into the matter, and, on receiving their report, I shall communicate with my hon. Friend.
