HC Deb 26 July 1983 vol 46 c355W
Mr. Soames

asked the hon. Member for Wokingham (Sir W. van Straubenzee), as representing the Church Commissioners, if the Church Commissioners derive any income from salmon netting.

Sir William van Straubenzee

Yes, but only from one area, the mouth of the Tyne. The fishing rights are let to the Northumbrian water authority, so that the salmon fishing is properly controlled.
