§ 26. Colonel HOWARD-BURY
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has had any further communications from the French Government with regard to the Dead Sea concessions; and whether the question will now be referred to arbitration at The Hague?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
The French Ambassador has recently mentioned the matter. As regards the second part of the question, I regret that I am not yet able to give a definite reply. The question of submitting the matter to arbitration is under active consideration by His Majesty's Government.
§ Colonel HOWARD-BURY
Can the right hon. Gentleman say when he will be in a position to answer further questions on the subject?
I am afraid I cannot. There are other Departments involved. I hope the hon. and gallant Gentleman will allow the matter to stand over.
