§ 3. Sir EDWIN CORNWALL
asked whether belligerents who wilfully destroy the life of persons belonging to neutral States by inhuman methods of warfare are under the practice and custom of international law entitled to purchase indemnity by payment of moneys to individuals?
§ Sir E. GREY
No action of His Majesty's Government has given occasion for such question to arise between His Majesty's Government and any neutral State. I am not aware of any international law that has the effect described in the question.
