§ MR. GRETTON (Derbyshire, S.)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he can now state the total number of British vessels carrying alleged contraband, the seizure of 445 which has been upheld by the Japanese Prize Courts.
§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Earl PERCY,) Kensington, S.
The latest information received from His Majesty's Minister at Tokio is that the appeal for the release of "M.S. Dollar" has been rejected and that the Prize Court of first instance has condemned the "Roseley," "Lettrington, "and" Oakley,"with their cargoes. No other judgments, we understand, have yet been rendered.
