36. Captain CROOKSHANK
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what steps are being taken to secure suitable residential and office accommodation for His Majesty's Minister at Lima, Peru?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Godfrey Locker-Lampson)
I am happy to be able to state that the Peruvian Government have very generously provided free of charge a site for a new British Legation house in Lima. Building operations will be commenced on the site as soon as the necessary arrangements can be made.
May we take it that the thanks of His Majesty's Government will be conveyed to the Peruvian Government?
§ Mr. MACQUISTEN
And will it be seen that a worthy building is erected, because it will help our trade in South America very much?
