§ SIR GEORGE BADEN-POWELL
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Newfoundland modus vivendi will lapse at the end of the present fishing season; whether, in view of this, Her Majesty's Government have entered upon negotiations, or have taken other steps, to secure an amicable settlement of the point in dispute; and whether any detailed reply has yet been given to the explanations of the Representatives of the Newfoundland Government now in this country?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir J. FERGUSSON, Manchester, N.E.)
The modus vivendi will lapse at the end of the season. Her Majesty's Government are doing their best to find a solution of the points in dispute. No detailed reply has yet been given, but the views of Her Majesty's Government have been explained to the Delegates.
