§ Mr. LIVINGSTONE
asked the Solicitor-General for Scotland whether, in view of the injury caused to the inshore fishing grounds of the Western Isles by illegal trawling, he will make representations to the Admiralty to secure the services of a destroyer or other fast vessel, to have her headquarters at Stornoway, to assist the fishery cruiser in patrolling those waters?
§ The SOLICITOR - GENERAL for SCOTLAND
As the hon. Member is aware the whole question of trawling and policing of Scottish sea fisheries has been investigated by a committee whose report has just been issued. My Noble Friend the Secretary for Scotland is considering the report and will keep in view the suggestion made in the question. He has already taken some steps with a view to strengthening the patrol.
