Is not the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Government of Eire have repudiated all connection with the British Commonwealth and consider that they no longer belong to it? Is the Department of Commonwealth Relations to deal with countries which, according to their own account, are foreign countries?
Has the right hon. Gentleman seen the official statement made by the Minister of External Relations on 21st July in the Dail, where he said:
We are certainly not a member of the British Commonwealth of Nations"?
How, therefore, is it possible to put Questions on this subject to the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations?
