asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware of the recommendations made by His Majesty's Minister at Berne and of His Majesty's Consul-General at Zurich in favour of the continued employment of Mr. Vice-Consul Gann, late of the Dover Patrol, in the Consular Service; whether he is acquainted with this officer's long record of consular, naval, and intelligence work; on what grounds was he removed from his post at Zurich; whether in making displacements of this character he has regard to war services; and, if so, why 27 men of military age, but of no war service, received Consular posts at or about the same date as Mr. Gann's dismissal?
