§ MR. CHARLES McARTHUR (Liverpool, Exchange)
I beg to ask the Undersecretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has yet received from the British Minister at Brussels a report of the proceedings of the International Diplomatic Conference held at that city in February last to consider the proposed unification of the laws of the various Maritime States with respect to collision and salvage; and whether the draft treaties adopted by the Conference, when communicated, will receive the consideration of His Majesty's Government.
§ EARL PERCY
A full report has not yet been received. The Answer to the last paragraph is in the affirmative.
