HC Deb 05 May 1924 vol 173 c11
16. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is now in possession of further information with regard to the proposed action of the Norwegian Government to compel all trawlers calling at Trömsoe to pay pilotage dues; what action he has been able to take in the matter; and if he is aware that foreign trawlers calling at British ports or passing through British waters do not suffer a similar compulsion?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. J. Ramsay MacDonald)

His Majesty's Minister at Christiania is discussing this matter with the Norwegian Government and I would prefer to make no statement until I have received his report, which is expected shortly.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

Will the right hon. Gentleman let me know when the report has been received?
