asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (1) whether a permanent mixed fishery Commission for Canada and Newfoundland has been appointed as set forth in Sub-section 4 of Article 4 of the Award of The Hague Tribunal of 7th September, 1910; and, if so, whether he can give the names of the Commissioners; and (2) whether any request has been received from the Government of the United States that all fishery legislation which it is proposed by the Government of Canada to present to the Parliament of Canada should first be submitted to the United States Government for its approval or otherwise; if so, what are the views of the Canadian Government and of His Majesty's Government upon the matter; and whether any dispatch upon this subject has been received from His Majesty's Ambassador at Washington, and to what effect?

Sir. E. GREY

His Majesty's Ambassador has been in communication with the Canadian Government and the Government of the United States regarding the recommendations on the subject of fishery regulations made by The Hague Tribunal. Correspondence is still proceeding, and I cannot make a further statement on the subject at this moment.
