Alert me about debates like this

Mr. McNeil:

I beg to move, in page 2, line 34, at the beginning, to insert: Without prejudice to the operation of section three of the Diseases of Fish Act, 1937. This Amendment is necessary to safeguard the powers of some fishery boards in regard to dead or dying fish. We need a safeguard under Section 3 of the Diseases of Fish Act, 1937. That section gives power to district boards to take practical steps to secure the removal of dead or dying fish.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
