HC Deb 25 July 1872 vol 212 c1758

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, In what part of the Estimates the difference between Mr. Clarke Jervoise's salary of £530 as Clerk in the Foreign Office, and his salary of £800 as temporary Secretary of Legation at the Vatican, together with his allowance of £200 a-year for house rent, is to be found?


The salary of Mr. Clarke Jervoise, as a clerk in the Foreign Office, amounting to £530, has been voted under sub-head A of the Vote for the Foreign Office; the additional allowance of £270 has been also voted under sub-head D for incidental expenses in the same Vote for the Foreign Office, and the allowance for house-rent, amounting to £200, will be taken out of the Vote for Diplomatic Services under the sub-head P for Special Missions and Services, Mr. Jervoise's appointment at Rome being considered of a special or temporary character.


, in consequence of the answer of the noble Viscount, gave Notice that on going into Committee of Supply he should call the attention of the House to the omission from the Estimates of a Vote for the expenses of the Diplomatic Mission to the Vatican, and to the withdrawal of the same from Parliamentary control, and would move that, in the opinion of the House, all diplomatic salaries should be submitted to Parliament in the ordinary Estimates of the year.
