HC Deb 16 July 1931 vol 255 c777
95. Major WOOD

(for Mr. MILLAR) asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what reply has been given to the inquiry received from the Netherlands Minister as to whether His Majesty's Government would be prepared to participate in an international conference with a view to the revision of the North Sea Fisheries Convention of 1882; and whether he is prepared to invite all the Powers interested in the North Sea fisheries to attend a conference on this subject?


The reply to be returned to the Netherlands Government is still under consideration.

Major WOOD

Can the hon. Gentleman say when the reply will be sent, and the nature of it?


I am afraid not. There are a number of Government Departments concerned and the Foreign Office is only one among many.
