§ MR. WOOD
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if his attention has been drawn to complaints of the fishermen and others on the Ardglass shore of the destruction of spawn by steam trawlers coming within the three mile area; and will he consider the advisability of introducing a Bill to increase the limit to seven miles.
(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) No such complaints have recently been received. It is not proposed to extend the limit within which steam trawling may now be prohibited.
