HC Deb 25 April 1975 vol 890 c422W
Mr. MacCormick

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will postpone any ban on gill net fishing until the end of the 1975 salmon netting season.

Mr. William Ross

No. I am advised that, in view of the threat posed by the expansion of this method of netting to the salmon stocks of some of our rivers. the introduction of the proposed ban should not be delayed.
