HC Deb 20 April 1896 vol 39 c1254
MR. J. BRYCE (Aberdeen, S.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether the Foreign Office has received from the Danish Government a memorial from the inhabitants of Iceland regarding the trade in sheep from Iceland to this country, and the injury which would be inflicted on Iceland if that trade were to be stopped by British legislation; and, whether, if such a memorial has been received, it can be presented to Parliament?


Yes, Sir; a memorial in the sense indicated has been received through the Danish Minister from a public meeting held in Iceland. There will be no objection to laying it before Parliament, together with the covering note of the Minister, and the reply of Her Majesty's Government.
