HC Deb 15 November 1906 vol 165 c102

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the memorial church, erected at Constantinople by public subscription, to commemorate the conclusion of peace in 1856, is sufficient to accommodate the Anglican population in Constantinople; and, if so, whether he will consider the advisability of closing the embassy chapel and of relieving the taxpayers from the attendant expenses, especially as the ambassador and several members of his staff are Roman Catholics.


I will make inquiries as to the facts, but the question is not permanently affected by the religious opinions of any Member of the diplomatic staff who happens to be at Constantinople at a given date.
