HC Deb 22 February 1907 vol 169 c1143
MR. MONTGOMERY (Somersetshire, Bridgwater)

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether the attention of the Foreign Office has been called to the regulations in force at the port of Genoa, which have been the subject of public protest by the masters of British, Spanish, and Norwegian ships trading on the Italian coast; and, if so, whether His Majesty's Government will make friendly representations to the Italian Government with a view to the adoption of remedial measures in the interest of British shipping.

(Answered by Sir Edward Grey.) His Majesty's Government have anticipated the suggestion of the hon. Member, and they believe that the Italian Government are doing their utmost to remedy the existing state of affairs.
