HC Deb 16 June 1898 vol 59 c417
SIR G. BADEN-POWELL (Liverpool, Kirkdale)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has official information that the Congress of the United States has now duly and unanimously appropriated the money necessary to pay the damages due to sealers, thus completing the award of the Behring Sea Paris Arbitration?


Her Majesty's Ambassador at Washington has reported by telegraph that the amount awarded by the Behring Sea Claims Commission was voted on the 13th instant by a special Bill in the House of Representatives.
