§ 37. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether there are any British consular representatives in Eastern Galicia; whether he has had any reports from those representatives on matters affecting British commerce in this region; and what is the nature of these reports?
§ Mr. GILLETT
There is a British Vice-Consul at Lwow (Lemberg) who continually reports on matters affecting his consular district through the Commercial Secretary to His Majesty's Embassy at Warsaw. I am unable to give details of all such reports as some of them are confidential, but if my hon. Friend will be specific I will endeavour to answer the last part of his question, if necessary, after notice has been given.
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
Is my hon. Friend aware that, owing to the disturbances in Eastern Galicia this year, it is very difficult for British business men and travellers to proceed about their business there, and is the Consul prepared to give all protection and assistance in this case?
§ Mr. GILLETT
The Consul is prepared to do whatever he can. If my hon. and gallant Friend has any information to give, I shall be very glad if he will let me have it.
§ Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY
Will my hon. Friend consider informing the Consul that in these circumstances he should give special protection to British subjects?
