§ DR. CAMERON (Glasgow, College)
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, If he would state the precise date on which salary as a public servant ceased to be paid to Sir Henry Drummond Wolff?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Sir JAMES FERGUSSON) (Manchester, N.E.)
In accordance with the practice followed in the Diplomatic Service, Sir Henry Drummond Wolff's emoluments ceased 10 days after his return to this country—namely, on the 3rd instant.
§ DR. CAMERON
That being the fact, may I ask the right hon. Gentleman why he told me the other day that Sir Henry Drummond Wolff was not a Diplomatic servant when the interview with him and a representative of The Observer took place?
§ SIR JAMES FERGUSSON
Sir Henry Drummond Wolffs employment, as is well known, was in connection with a Special Mission; and because he received the usual number of days' pay on return to this country it does not follow that his employment was continued.
