HC Deb 05 February 1918 vol 101 c2059
5. Mr. KING

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has received inquiries as to a proposed visit of the Archbishop of York to the United States; whether a passport will be granted; and whether the Archbishop will go with official introductions, recommendations, or instructions, or as a private individual?


The answer to the first two parts of the question is in the affirmative. With regard to the third part of the question, the Archbishop has certainly no official instructions. The visit is, I understand, made on the invitation of the bishops of the Protestant Episcopal Church.
