Alert me about debates like this



asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many men of German and alien birth have been appointed British Consuls and Vice-Consuls during the last 12 months; how many people of foreign extraction are employed in such offices abroad; and what is the number of ex-service men who have been found employment in them?

In the last 12 months 14 persons of foreign birth, of whom none is an ex-enemy, have been appointed to posts in the unsalaried Consular Service. As regards the conditions of appointment of foreigners and as regards subordinate staffs, I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to his question on the subject on 20th February.
