HC Deb 08 July 1919 vol 117 cc1575-6
8. Captain ORMSBY-GORE

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will state who is the British political representative in Finland; whether he holds the rank of Minister or Chargé d' Affaires; and, if he does not, why a British Minister or Chargé d' Affaires has not been sent to the Finnish Government?


Mr. Henry McCrady Bell is at present His Majesty's representative at Helsingfors, and holds the rank of acting Chargé d' Affaires. A Minister is about to be appointed, and will proceed to Helsingfors almost immediately.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

What are General Gough's functions?


I think that question had better be put to the War Office.
