HC Deb 01 May 1900 vol 82 cc421-2

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is now in a position to give the House some information in regard to the deliberations of the Hydrographical Conference which assembled last summer for the purpose of considering, amongst other matters, questions affecting the fishing industry.


The right hon. Gentleman wishes me to say that 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. He is not able to make a more definite statement until these communications are completed.
