asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether he has been informed of a serious error and awkward mistake in the Report of the Inspectors of Salmon Fisheries as to the take of fish in the Wye; and, whether he will have any objection to lay before the House Copies of the Correspondence that may have passed between himself or the Inspectors of Fisheries and other parties on the subject?
in reply, said, he understood that while the Report of one of the Inspectors of Salmon Fisheries was going through the press, by a clerical error the word "increase" was unfortunately printed "decrease." He had no objection to lay the Correspondence referred to by the hon. Member on the Table. Directions had been given for the reprinting of the Report in its corrected form.
