§ 73. Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
asked whether Captain Morton Eden is being withdrawn from Albania and, if so, what British officer is going to replace him in that country; and whether his withdrawal will be postponed until the replacement has taken place in order that the British military authorities may be kept closely informed regarding any military or political developments in the independent parts of Albania?
§ Sir A. WILLIAMSON
Mr. Morton Eden, who has never held military rank, was withdrawn from Albania in January, 1920, with the concurrence of the Foreign Office. As it was considered that there was no longer any necessity for such services as had been rendered by Mr. Eden, he was not replaced by any other British representative. An answer to the second part of the question does not now arise.
§ Sir S. HOARE
Is it not a fact that this gentleman also held the position of vice-Consul; and, if so, how are we to get on without consular representation in Albania?
