§ Mr. PONSONBY
(by Private Notice) asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether there has been any reconsideration of the disciplinary action taken with regard to Mr. O'Malley, who was called upon to resign from the Foreign Service?
§ Sir A. CHAMBERLAIN
I received some time ago an appeal for consideration from Mr. O'Malley. After full consideration, and such consultation as appeared necessary, I have decided, with the approval of the Prime Minister, to give effect to that appeal. Mr. O'Malley's resignation will, therefore, not be accepted. He will be placed en disponibilité for one year, and will lose five years' seniority.
