§ 23. Mr. Popplewell
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will continue to refuse, until agreement is reached with the inshore fishermen, to confirm any new bylaw suggested by the Northumberland and Tyneside Rivers Board relating to the type of net that makes it more difficult for these men to earn their living.47W
Before confirming any bylaw, I consider the interests of all parties likely to be affected by its operation. I have not as yet received any fresh proposal from this board.
