The President of the International Court of Justice,

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

having regard to Article 37 of the Rules of the Court;

Having regard to the Order of November 26th, 1957, in the case concerning the Aerial Incident of July 27th, 1955, between the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and Bulgaria, whereby June 2nd, 1958, was fixed as the time-limit for the filing of the Memorial of the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the fixing of the time-limit for the filing by the Respondent of its Counter-Memorial was reserved for a subsequent Order;

Having regard to the Order of January 27th, 1958, in the said case, whereby December 9th, 1958, was fixed as the time-limit for the filing of the Counter-Memorial of the Government of the People's Republic of Bulgaria and the rest of the procedure was reserved for further decision;

Whereas, by a letter of May 6th, 1958, received in the Registry on May 7th, the Agent for the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland requested an extension to [p 26] September 2nd, 1958, of the time-limit for the filing of the Memorial of that Government;

Whereas, on May 7th, 1958, a copy of the said letter was sent to the Agent for the Government of the People's Republic of Bulgaria, who was invited to state the views of his Government on the request therein contained as soon as possible; and whereas the Bulgarian Minister for Foreign Affairs was the same day notified by a telegram of the request;

Whereas no reply to these communications has yet reached the Registry;

Whereas, however, by a letter of January 18th, 1958, which was received in the Registry on January 22nd, and upon which the aforementioned Order of January 27th, 1958, was made, the Agent for the Government of the People's Republic of Bulgaria, who had been informed of the date fixed for the riling of the Memorial of the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, stated that he considered that, in accordance with Article 37 of the Rules and in connection with Article 62 of the Rules, the Court should fix a time-limit for the Counter-Memorial at least equal to that fixed for the Memorial;

Whereas there is no objection to granting the application of the Agent for the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland for an extension of the time-limit, and to granting a similar extension of the time-limit for the Counter-Memorial of the Government of the People's Republic of Bulgaria;

Extends as follows the time-limits fixed by the Orders made in this case on November 26th, 1957, and January 27th, 1958:
For the Memorial of the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland: September 2nd, 1958;

For the Counter-Memorial of the Government of the People's Republic of Bulgaria: June 9th, 1959;

The subsequent procedure remaining reserved for further decision.

Done in English and French, the English text being authoritative, at the Peace Palace, The Hague, this nineteenth day of May, one thousand nine hundred and fifty-eight, 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 of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and to the Government of the People's Republic of Bulgaria, respectively.
