§ Mr. AMMON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that at the Barcelona Conference, held in the spring of 1921, a Resolution was proposed by the British delegate to the effect that the only point established in international law respecting the width of territorial waters is that it is a national question; that the Soviet Government have expressed their willingness to negotiate on this subject with the British Government; that the Russian Government have arrived at a settlement with the Norwegian Government on this point; and whether similar agreements can be negotiated between the Russian and British Governments?
§ Mr. McNEILL
The answer to the first three parts of the question is in the negative. The last part does not, therefore, arise.
