§ 10. Captain CROOKSHANK
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any members of the British delegation to the last Assembly of the League of Nations are now employed at the Foreign Office; and, if so, in what capacity and at what salary?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
The composition of the delegation to the 10th Assembly was announced to the House on 4th of July, 1929. Two members of the delegation, Lord Cecil of Chelwood, who represents His Majesty's Government on the Preparatory Disarmament Commission, and the hon. Member for Coventry (Mr. Noel Baker), my Parliamentary Private Secretary, are at present serving voluntarily in the Foreign Office.
Lord Cecil of Chelwood is serving in the Foreign Office in a voluntary capacity, and was appointed by His Majesty's Government to represent the Government on the Preparatory Commission on Disarmament.
§ Captain CROOKSHANK
Is he serving as an honorary member of the Government or as an honorary member of the Foreign Office staff?
What is Lord Cecil's status? Is he a civil servant, or is he there in a Ministerial capacity?
He is a voluntary worker in the Foreign Office and represents His Majesty's Government on the Preparatory Commission on Disarmament.
I cannot do other than give the answer that I have already given. I do not know what the hon. Member means. If he means relevant papers, yes.
