§ MR. BOTTOMLEY
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will state the date of the last Consular Report issued by the British Consul at Bucharest.
§ SIR EDWAKD GREY
There has been, up to the present, no British Consular officer at Bucharest, except the translator to His Majesty's Legation, who had the rank of Vice-Consul, and the reports on the trade and commerce of Roumania have been hitherto furnished by His Majesty's Consul - General at Galatz. The last Report, for the year 1905, was issued early in June of the present year, (3618, Annual Series). A British Consulate has now been established at Bucharest, and Reports will in future be furnished by His Majesty's Consul at that capital.
