HC Deb 06 April 1950 vol 473 c177W
Major Beamish

asked the Minister of Agriculture why there has been no issue of the annual details of the catch by rods and nets in the principal salmon rivers in England and Wales since the war; and if he will issue instructions for such a report to be issued in future, in the same form as it was issued before the war.

Mr. T. Williams

The issue of annual reports on salmon and freshwater fisheries was suspended during the war, and I do not consider that a resumption of the practice would be justified under present conditions.
