§ 5. Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any negotiations have yet been entered into with the United States of America to define and agree on the right of search and capture of private property at sea in time of sanctions?
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
Can my right hon. Friend say when he will be in a position to give me an answer to this question?
No. This is a very big question, and we have big enough questions in hand with the United States at the moment without tackling this one at the same time.
Yes, in a certain sense It is; but I think it was the desire of that Government that we should not raise this question during the Conference.
