SUBDIVIDING THE WESTERN SEA FISHERIES DISTRICT. On Tuesday, March 17th at a meeting of the Western Sea Fisheries Board, at Portmadoc, Mr J. Issard Davies in the chair, a long discussion took place on the question of subdividing the Board's District, a draft previously drawn up being now considered. It was proposed to divide the District into sub- districts, and that they be named Northern Division and Western Division. Several mem- bers supported the proposal, especially so Mr Bonsall, who strongly urged that it should be passed. Mr Thomas (Criccieth) wished to know what advantage would be derived from its passing. The Chairman replied that it would be more convenient for members to meet within their sub- divisions, and they would be able to master their duties and to perform their work more effectu- ally. Mr Thomas That means, in other words, "Home Rule." I Laughter]. Messrs Rowlands and Davies made further remarks, and suggested that the matter be post- poned. Mr Bonsall, however, did not agree to this, and it appeared to him strange that they should go to the trouble of drawing out rules and yet not reap any benefit therefrom. Mr R. Davies supported the resolution, and it was passed. The Northern Division includes the coast line of Anglesey, Carnarvon, and Merioneth, from Rhosfynach (Colwyn Bay) to the mouth of the Dovey, while the Western Division takes in the country from the mouth of the Dovey—including Cardiganshire,—to Cemaes Head, Pembroke- shire. The powers of the sub-divisions were carefully considered, and it was decided that Mr Casson summon the first meeting of the Western Division, to appoint a Chairman, Secretary, and Clerk (local), and that a report and an estimate of costs should be submitted to the Board.
