§ MR. D. A. THOMAS
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether, in sanctioning the advertisement of particular firms in Consular Reports, the Foreign Office makes previous inquiry and accepts any responsibility for their financial stability.
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Lord CRANBORNE,) Rochester
The hon. Gentleman is under a misapprehension in assuming that the Foreign Office sanctions the advertisement in the Consular Reports of particular firms. That would be entirely contrary to our practice.
