§ Sir A. SINCLAIR
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is taking any steps for the prohibition of Sunday fishing during the autumn season at Yarmouth; and whether he is obtaining the co-operation of the English Ministry and the English branch of the industry?
§ Mr. ELLIOT
I have been asked to reply. I have no power to prohibit or restrict herring fishing on Sundays or at any other time and the only way whereby the restriction could be effected would be by agreement within the industry.
