19 27. Marts. Xr. 13. Agreernent between His Britannic Majesty's Government and the Administration of the Faroe Islands, for Regu* lating the Financial Relations between the United Kingdom and the Faroe Islands. I Overensstemmelse med Vedta- gelse af Lagtingets Landsnævn er der Dags Dato indgaaet følgende britisk-færøsk Overenskomst: 1. A joint Anglo-Faroese Com- mittee of Three shall be set up and maintained in Thorshavn for the purpose of advising on the Faroese tråde and foreign exchange position and of assisting in the execution of the present Agree- rnent. 2.
