HC Deb 13 March 1907 vol 171 c28
MR. STANLEY WILSON (Yorkshire, E.R., Holderness)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what are the details of the sum of £7,000, to be voted during the next financial year, for the Anglo-French Convention connected with the New Hebrides.


It is impossible to give details at present, as it is not yet known when the Convention will come into operation and, moreover, a considerable part of the sum to be voted is to cover expenditure the precise amount of which has still to be settled in consultation with the French Government. The main purposes for which expenditure may be necessary during the next financial year are the salaries of the members of the Joint Court, and other officers, such as labour inspectors, and the provision of Government buildings as required by Article III. of the Convention.


Has the money yet been paid?


No, Sir.
