3. Captain CROOKSHANK
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is the total sum of pay and allowances which would be payable respectively to an Ambassador and to a Minister accredited to Turkey?
§ Mr. McNEILL
The salaries payable to Ambassadors and Ministers (at whatsoever posts they may be) are £2,500 and £2,000, respectively. The allowance for "frais de représentation" payable to His Majesty's representative at Constantinople is £5,000 a year. It is not at present intended to make any increase in this allowance on the appointment of an Ambassador.
Sir HENRY COWAN
Is it not the fact that Turkey has made good her claim to be a great Power, and ought we not to be represented by an Ambassador, with the full rights attaching to that office?
