6. Lieut.-Colonel MURRAY
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is the present staff of the political mission to Poland, and whether a Minister has yet been appointed?
Sir Percy Wyndham has been accredited as His Majesty's Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary on a special mission to the Republic of Poland. His staff consists of four secretaries.
§ Sir H. HOARE
Does that mean that Sir Percy Wyndham is the permanent Minister appointed to this Republic?
I should not like my hon. and gallant Friend to put any other meaning into what I have said.
§ The following question stood on the. Paper in the name of Lieut.-Colonel A. MURRAY:
§ 13. To ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will inform the House what is the present staff of the British political mission to Poland; and whether a Minister has yet been appointed?1575
May I ask, in view of the fact that this question is exactly similar to one I have previously asked, how it is that it appears on the Paper a second time?
§ At the conclusion of Questions.
§ Mr. SPEAKER
The hon. and gallant Member for Kincardine (Lieut.-Colonel Murray) asked me a question earlier in to-day's proceedings as to why two questions in his name, in almost identical terms, appeared on the Paper. For the moment I threw the blame upon the printers. Now I am afraid I have to shift the blame on to his own shoulders, because I have in my hand the two questions which he himself handed in.
