HC Deb 15 December 1948 vol 459 c158W
Mr. Pryde

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will review the legislation governing salmon fishing in the River Tweed with a view to removing some of the anomalies which at present exist in relation to penalties.

Mr. Woodburn

I have set up a Committee which is now considering questions concerning the poaching of salmon in Scottish rivers. The penalties authorised by the Tweed Fisheries Acts, and the legislation affecting Scottish rivers in general, will be reviewed in the light of the Committee's report
