HC Deb 11 June 1956 vol 554 c1W
32. Mr. W. Yates

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether, before confirming the proposed byelaw of the Severn River Board to prohibit any form of line fishing during the hours of darkness on the waters under its control, he will make it a condition that agreed and defined stretches of the Severn are to be free from prohibition and open at all times to the anglers of Dawley, Oakengates and Wellington.

Mr. Nugent

My right hon. Friend will consider this request, together with any other objections that may be received when the Severn River Board's fishery byelaws are submitted to him for confirmation.
