§ 1. Major Earl WINTERTON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs for what reason Sir Henry Macmahon, formerly High Commissioner in Egypt, is no longer employed; and why he is not in receipt of a pension?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGNAFFAIRS (Mr. Cecil Harmsworth)
Sir Henry Macmahon is in receipt of his full pension from the Government of India. His period of service as High Commissioner in Egypt, amounting to two years and thirteen days, did not entitle him to a further pension under the Diplomatic and Consular Vote. Since his retirement from that position, His Majesty's Government have not been able to offer him suitable employment.
