§ 2. Lieutenant-Colonel W. GUINNESS
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will grant a Return showing the names of the officials attend- 715 ing the Peace Conference, the offices they are filling, and the salaries which they are drawing?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Cecil Harmsworth)
I will consider the compilation of such a Return; it will, however, be necessary to refer for full data to other Departments as my Department is only responsible for the permanent officials on its own delegation, and for certain temporary officials engaged for the Conference: not for the naval and military officers and permanent officials from other Departments.
§ Lieutenant-Colonel GUINNESS
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that of the ladies in Paris graded as typists there are said to be a large number with no experience whatever?
§ Lieutenant-Colonel Sir S. HOARE
Is the hon. Gentleman also aware that the Peace Conference is costing £20,000 a day more than the South African War?
