§ MR. GOURLEY (Sunderland)
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether the seven vessels seized by American cruisers in Alaskan waters, and ordered to be released, have been liberated; and, whether Her Majesty's Government have published notices to British subjects in Canada 278 warning them against infringing the United States Fishery Regulations?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Sir JAMES FERGUSSON) Manchester, N.E.
): The Dominion Government have not reported whether the order for the release of the vessels, against which legal proceedings had been instituted, was carried out, but this will be ascertained. Her Majesty's Government do not publish notices relating to public affairs in Canada; and there is no doubt that the Canadian people are fully acquainted with the Laws and Regulations of the United States.
