§ MR. ASHLEY
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any progress has yet been made in the negotiations between this country and other Powers with a view to the substitution of a new treaty for that of 1855 with reference to Sweden and Norway.
§ SIR EDWARD GREY
I can only refer the hon. Member to my reply of 26th February on this subject, † to which, at present, I have nothing to add. It would in any case be unusual to make statements about negotiations which concern several other Powers while they are incomplete.
