§ CAPTAIN SINCLAIR (Forfarshire)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the British delegate to the International Fisheries Conference, held at Stockholm last year, has made any report of those proceedings to Her Majesty's Government; and, if so, whether it will be issued as a Parliamentary Paper.
§ *MR. BRODRICK
A Report has been received and the question of its publication will be considered when the correspondence between the British and Swedish Governments has been concluded.
§ CAPTAIN SINCLAIR
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Swedish Government, some mouths ago, communicated to Her Majesty's Government, the other North Sea Powers, and Russia, that it accepted the programme of the International Fisheries Conference held at Stockholm last year, and is resolved, in case of agreement on the part of the other Governments interested, to ask from the Riksdag the funds necessary to carry it out; whether favourable replies have been received by the Swedish Government from the Governments of Norway and Germany concerning the co-operation 783 proposed by the Stockholm Conference; and whether any, and, if so, what, reply has been made by Her Majesty's Government to this communication from the Swedish Government.
§ *MR. BRODRICK
As I stated in answer to a question on 1st May, communications are at present passing between the British and Swedish Governments with regard to the participation of Great Britain in certain investigations concerning the fishing industry which were recommended by the Conference. These communications are not yet completed, and I am therefore not able to make a more definite statement.
