HC Deb 26 February 1907 vol 169 c1441

I beg to ask the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, in view of the fact that in the Report of the British delegates who attended the meeting of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea, held at Amsterdam in 1906, it is stated that His Majesty's Government do not intend to participate in the North Sea Fishery Investigations on the present footing after 22nd July, 1907, is he yet in a position to say whether the investigations by foreign Governments will also terminate on that date.

SIR EDWARD STRACHEY (Somersetshire, S.)

We are informed that it has been decided that this country should continue to participate in the investigations to which my hon. friend refers for another twelve months, i.e., until July, 1908, on the same terms as before.


Will the hon. Gentleman answer the latter part of my Question?


That should be addressed to the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs.
