HC Deb 22 May 1873 vol 216 c275

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether there is any truth in the report that the Greek Government have decided to suppress all Legations to Foreign Courts except Constantinople; and, whether the Greek Legation in London is, in consequence, to be withdrawn?


Sir, Her Majesty's Minister at Athens, Mr. Stuart, has reported that he had been informed by the Hellenic Minister of State, Mr. Deligeorges, that the Hellenic Government intended to suppress all their Legations abroad, with the exception of that at Constantinople, but up to the present moment no notification had been made either at Athens or in London of withdrawing the Greek Legation from this country.
