[p 62]
The International Court of Justice,

having regard to Article 48 of the Statute of the Court,

having regard to Articles 37 and 38 of the Rules of Court,

having regard to the Order made by the Acting President of the Court on November 9th, 1949, to determine the procedure in the Anglo-Norwegian Fisheries case,

Makes the following Order:

Whereas by letter dated March 7th, 1950, the Agent of the Norwegian Government has asked that the time-limit for the presentation of the Norwegian Government's Counter-Memorial, which had been fixed by the Order of November 9th, 1949, for May 31st, 1950, be extended to July 31st, 1950;

Whereas, by letter of March 20th, 1950, the Agent of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland declared that he did not object to this request provided that, if the Court saw fit to grant it, this should be done only subject to the condition that, if judgment was not given before the opening of the third fishing season, the Decree of 1935 should not be applied beyond the Red or Yellow Lines;

Whereas the condition attached by the Agent of the United Kingdom Government to his assent to this request could be satisfied only by resorting to the procedure appropriate thereto; [p 63]

Whereas the Agent of the United Kingdom Government has formally reserved his right to ask, if necessary, for an extension of the time-limit for the presentation of the Reply of his Government;

Decides

to postpone to the following dates the lime-limits fixed by the Order of the Acting President of the Court of November 9th, 1949:

for the Norwegian Counter-Memorial, to July 31st, 1950;

for the Reply of the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, to October 31st, 1950 ;

for the Rejoinder of the Norwegian Government, to December 31st, 1950.

Done in French and English, the French text being authoritative, at the Peace Palace, The Hague, this twenty-ninth day of March, one thousand nine hundred and fifty, in three copies, one of which will be placed in the archives of the Court and the others transmitted to the Government of the United Kingdom and to the Norwegian Government respectively.
