HC Deb 09 April 1877 vol 233 c774

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government to withdraw our Military Attaché to the Embassy at Berlin; and, if so, whether he can state the circumstances which have induced the Government to adopt that course?


Sir, in reply to the Question of the hon. Gentleman, I have to inform him that we have not withdrawn our Military Attaché from the Embassy at Berlin. General Walker has resigned the office he has held with so much distinction, but the Government have not come to any decision not to fill it up.
