HC Deb 02 April 1940 vol 359 c38W
Mr. Woodburn

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether his attention has been called to the decision of the Court of Session in the case of the petition and complaint against Hutchison Wells, fisherman, Kincardine, in favour of the fisherman; whether, now this action is over, he will institute an inquiry into all the circumstances concerning the now clearly unjustified ban on the salmon fishing of the Forth; and whether the fishing rights can now be restored to the fishermen of Clackmannanshire and Stirlingshire?

Mr. Colville

I have seen reports of the court decision referred to. I am making inquiries into the matter and will communicate with the hon. Member as soon as they are completed.
