asked the Prime Minister whether, seeing that the United States naval authorities had declared that the Declaration of London was thoroughly unfavourable to Britain, he would allow the Bill to be non-controversial when it came before this House?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I have no knowledge of the statement referred to, but I fail to understand why such a statement, if made, should render the Naval Prize Court Bill non-controversial.
Has not the right hon. Gentleman seen or heard of the great naval authority in the United States who has issued a pamphlet on this subject?
