§ SIR HENRY HOLLAND
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether any progress has been made towards the settlement of the Fortune Bay Fishery dispute; and, whether he can, consistently with the public interest, inform the House what is the present position of the case?
§ SIR CHARLES W. DILKE
In asking my hon. Friend to postpone his Question from last Tuesday to this day, I hoped, Sir, to be able to make known the position of the negotiations which were then proceeding; but, as these have not yet come to a conclusion, I can only promise that no delay shall take place in communicating their result to the House.
