§ Viscount Lambton
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will introduce legislation to enable inshore fishermen to have the right to fish beyond the three-mile limit from 1st February onwards.
§ Mr. Scott-Hopkins
Orders controlling fishing for salmon and migratory trout in specified areas were introduced to protect traditional fisheries, and it is not, at present, proposed to revoke them. In general British fishermen may fish freely for all other species.
