GOVERNOR OF NEWFOUNDLAND TO LORD GREY
CONCURRING IN PROPOSAL OF CANADA TO SUBMIT LABRADOR BOUNDARY QUESTION TO JUDICAL COMMITTEE FOR DECISION.
P.C. 1694 M.
2nd October, 1907.
By a despatch dated 20th May 1904 the Right Honourable the Secretary of State for the Colonies informed my predecessor that His Majesty's Government and the Government of the Dominion of Canada were agreed as to the desirability of submitting to the Imperial Privy Council for decision, the question of the Labrador Boundary between Canada and Newfoundland; and I now have the honour to acquaint your Lordship with the fact that my Ministers concur with that proposal, and will be prepared to submit their case forthwith.
I trust that this decision of my Ministers may be acceptable to your Government, and that an early and satisfactory settlement of this long outstanding question may thus be reached.
I have, etc.,
(Sd.) WM. MACGREGOR.
