Hon. GROTE STIRLING (Acting Minister of Fisheries):
Mr. Speaker, yesterday the
hon. member for Prince (Mr. MacLean) asked a question about oyster fishing to which I promised an answer.
Oyster fishing in East, West and North rivers which flow into Charlottetown harbour, Hillsboro bay, Prince Edward Island, has not been closed.
The regulations that will govern oyster fishing therein are at the moment receiving particular consideration because of the questions of health involved.
