HC Deb 10 December 1900 vol 88 c344

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Report of the British delegate who attended the International Fisheries Conference held at Stockholm last year will now be published; will he state whether Great Britain proposes to take part in the investigations concerning the fishing industry which were recommended by the Conference; and will the correspondence which has taken place on the subject be laid upon the Table of the House.


Her Majesty's Government cannot undertake to publish the Report of the British delegates. They have expressed their willingness to take part in the proposed Fishery Committee, the meeting of which has been postponed. The publication of the correspondence will be considered, when the scheme of investigations is further advanced.
