The International Court of Justice,

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

having regard to Article 62 of the Rules of Court,

Makes the following Order:

Having regard to the Application filed in the Registry on July 6th, 1955, whereby the Government of the French Republic instituted proceedings against the Kingdom of Norway in the matter of the payment of certain Norwegian Loans;

Having regard to the Order of September 19th, 1955, fixing the time-limits for the filing of the Memorial and the Counter-Memorial in this case and reserving the rest of the procedure for further decision;

Having regard to the Memorial filed by the Government of the French Republic within the time fixed;

Whereas on April 20th, 1956, that is, within the time fixed for the filing of the Counter-Memorial, the Government of the King[p19]dom of Norway filed a document setting out certain preliminary objections to the jurisdiction of the Court and contending that the claim submitted by the Application is inadmissible;

Whereas, accordingly, by virtue of the provisions of Article 62, paragraph 3, of the Rules of Court, the proceedings on the merits are suspended and a time-limit should be fixed for the presentation by the other Party of a written statement of its observations and submissions on the said preliminary objections;

The Court

Fixes June 4th, 1956, as the time-limit within which the Government of the French Republic may present a written statement of its observations and submissions in regard to the Objections raised by the Government of the Kingdom of Norway;

Reserves the rest of the procedure for further decision.

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