§ 100. Mr. H. Stewart
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has any report to make on his investigation into the decline of the herring fishing in the Firth of Forth.
§ Mr. Woodburn
No. The data so far collected are insufficient to enable any conclusions to be drawn. The conversion of the Admiralty vessel acquired for herring research has, however, recently been completed and she has started intensive work in the Forth. The work will be pressed on as quickly as possible.
