§ SIR C. DILKE
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, having regard to the protest of Canada in October, 1890, against Newfoundland being allowed to negotiate separately with the United States upon the fisheries questions, and the then admitted importance of obtaining unity of action on the part of the Colonies interested, Newfoundland is now to be represented on the Commission for the settlement of questions pending between the United States and Canada, so far as these include the subject of the North American fisheries?
THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Mr. J. CHAMBEBLAIN,) Birmingham, W.
The answer to the right honourable Member is in the affirmative. It has been arranged that Sir J. S. Winter, the Premier of Newfoundland, shall represent the Colony at the proposed conference.
