§ 21. Sir C. YATE
asked the Prime Minister whether in sanctioning the appointment of a Southern Irish minister plenipotentiary in America to take charge of all affairs relating only to the Irish Free State, the Governments of the other Dominions of the Crown were previously consulted; and, if so, what opinions were expressed by them respectively?
I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the first part of the statement which I made on 26th June in reply to a question asked by the Leader of the Opposition. At present I have nothing to add to what I then said.
§ Sir C. YATE
May I ask the right hon. Gentleman, can he say whether the Dominions concerned were consulted?
My hon. and gallant Friend must know that no statements or communications affecting the Dominions are published without the consent of the Dominions.
