Title:
PP/GC/LE/50 Letter from Sir G.C.Lewis to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston, regarding the abolition of the Scotch Fishery Board, 27 December [1856]
Date:
27/12/1856
Content:
Letter from Sir George Cornewall Lewis, [second Baronet, Chancellor of the Exchequer], the Grove [?], to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: he has received a letter from the Lord Advocate in relation to the Scotch Fishery Board. By TREVELYAN'S REPORT he seems to mean the report made by John Lefevre. Lewis has replied that the policy of authenticating articles of trade by public marks has been generally "exploded". The assumption is against the Fishery Board. The Board now has an opportunity to state any special reasons which may place it outside the general rule and sanction its continuance. When the statement has been received, the case may be judged; it would be premature at this stage to come to a decision such as referring the subject to a select committee. He has received Cavour's paper from Palmerston. "Tooke, who is a great authority has just published a very strong pamphlet against the Bank Act of 1844." 27 Dec [1856] Enclosed is a docket paper on which a secretary has noted: (i) "Sir G.C.Lewis. Regarding proposed abolition of Scotch Fishery Board." (ii) "Returned Lord Advocate's letter to Sir A.Gordon", 1 Sep 1856
