HC Deb 08 February 1982 vol 17 c240W
Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has any plans to introduce comprehensive legislation relating to salmon and freshwater fishers in Scotland, in addition to the Salmon Fisheries (Protection) (Scotland) Bill, relating to illegal netting.

Mr. George Younger

The Government are at present carrying out a wide-ranging review of the administration of and legislaion on salmon and freshwater fisheries in Scotland. This review is not yet complete. The Salmon Fisheries (Protection) (Scotland) Bill, which is not a Government measure, is concerned solely with amending the law in Scotland on the taking of salmon.
