§ MR. J. G. WEIR
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether he is aware that the fishing population of Iceland have, for some time past, suffered great loss through the depredations of British steam trawlers; and whether any representations upon the subject have been received from the Danish Government?
§ SIR EDWARD GREY
A representation was received from the Danish Minister in 1893 asking that British vessels should be warned not to fish in the territorial waters of Iceland. A 1565 notice was issued accordingly by the Board of Trade in April of that year.
