File No. 295/274.

Memorandum from the French Embassy.1


The French and Spanish Governments advise the signatory powers that they propose to apply to the Shereefian Government for a one-year renewal of the commission with which they had been intrusted last year by that Government in the matter of watching over the smuggling of arms as provided in the Algeciras act.

France and Spain, referring to their previous communication as to the conditions under which they will discharge this duty, trust that they will obtain, as before, the signatory powers’ assent to this proposition.
