HC Deb 28 January 1902 vol 101 c1102
* SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucestershire, Forest of Dean)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies, whether the Commonwealth Government has recently requested His Majesty's Government to attempt to bring about the appointment for the New Hebrides of a Land Court, and whether any negotiations have taken place upon the subject and with what result.


His Majesty's Government have proposed to the Government of France the appointment of a Commission for the adjustment of disputes about land in the New Hebrides. The discussion of the matter is still proceeding.
