HC Deb 26 October 1916 vol 86 c1293
58. Mr. LYNCH

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the fact that the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs has no longer a seat in this House, he will arrange a Secret Sitting at which the Secretary of State may discuss with Members of this House important matters relating to his office on which it is desirable that Members should be kept well informed?


I see no necessity for any such sitting, especially as the Foreign Office is so well represented in this House by my Noble Friend the Under-Secretary, who has a seat in the Cabinet.


Is there not some necessity to assure the minds of Members after the disastrous results of the diplomacy of the right hon. Gentleman?
