§ 36. Mr. Wedgwood
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the supervision of the "Mendoza" by the "Asturias" is to continue; what such supervision is costing this country apart from the loss of the services of the "Asturias"; and will he consider sinking the "Mendoza," in spite of international laws?
§ Mr. Wedgwood
Is this business of hedge-hopping all along the coast of South America going on indefinitely with all French ships?
My right hon. Friend will no doubt remember that questions of international law do not affect only the nations whose ships are intercepted, but also all other nations, some of them friendly to us.
