§ Major PRICE
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any and, if so, what arrangements have been made with the Irish Free State Government to secure to British trawlers the same right of trawling off the Free State Coast as is afforded to foreign trawlers?
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
No recent correspondence has taken place with the Irish Free State Government on the subject, and the position, therefore, remains as stated in a reply given in June, 1924, by the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Derby, then Secretary of State for the Colonies. I am sending a copy of that reply to my hon. and gallant Friend.
