§ MR. DILLON
On behalf of the hon. Member for South Donegal I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether there is any precedent for the business of the Foreign Office being conducted by anyone other than one of the principal Secretaries of State?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY
I have not looked into the question of precedents; but, inasmuch as Foreign Secretaries have no privilege in respect to the ills to which all flesh is heir, I have no doubt that many Foreign Secretaries have before this called upon their colleagues to assist them.
