§ MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will state the names of the countries represented at the Conference of the North Sea Powers, and the nature of the instructions given to the British representative.
§ * THE UNDER - SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. BRODRICK,) Surrey, Guildford
The countries represented at the Hydro-graphical Conference which lately met at Stockholm were: Great Britain, Germany, Russia, The Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Norway. It would be premature to present to Parliament correspondence upon the subject, or the instructions given to the Commissioners till the Report of the British delegates is received.
