Mr. LEICESTER HARMSWORTH
asked the Secretary for Scotland the date of the first sitting of the International Council for the Exploration of the North Sea, and the approximate date when the Council are expected to bring their investigations to a close?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
The Council first met in July, 1902. I am not in a position to answer the second part of the 1019W question. As my hon. Friend will understand, the proceedings of the International Council are not within my control.
