HC Deb 02 June 1919 vol 116 cc1672-3

asked the Prime Minister if, before the appointment of the new British Ambassador to Washington is determined, His Majesty's Government will consider whether, in view of Canada's geographical and economic position as regards the United States and her natural and vital interests at Washington, and in remembrance of the part Canada has played in every phase and activity of the War, the time is now opportune for the Dominion to have a special representative at Washington, with a status and prestige commensurate with the new Canada which has developed during the years of the War?


I regret that I can add nothing to the answer given by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary for the Colonies on the 20th May least to the hon. and gallant Member for Kincardine and Western.
