So far as my right hon. Friend is aware, the Emperor has not sought advice on this matter.

Will the Foreign Secretary consider giving such advice in view of the great importance of proper appointments to the Provinces in Ethiopia, having regard to the internal conditions in the country?

I am sure that His Majesty's representative at Addis Ababa will bear every consideration in mind and will give such advice as may be appropriate.
