§ MR. ARTHUR ARNOLD
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether, in accordance with the declaration of Her Majesty's Government recognizing "the Queen of Madagascar as absolute Monarch of the whole Island," and with the understanding between Great Britain and France "that the two Governments should maintain an identic attitude of policy in Madagascar, and act in concert in the matter," Her Majesty's Government has made representations to the French Government concerning the action and the claims of France in Madagascar?
§ LORD EDMOND FITZMAURICE
No, Sir; no communication has been made to the Government of France since my reply to the hon. Member on Thursday last.
