HC Deb 14 November 1932 vol 270 cc729-31
19. Captain ARTHUR HOPE

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs when it is proposed to re-appoint a Minister to the Vatican?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)

The position remains as it was explained to the hon. and gallant Member on the 7th March last. No decision has yet been taken with regard to this matter, but my hon. and gallant Friend may rest assured that it is not being lost sight of.

Captain HOPE

Is it not a fact that the Charge d'Affaires took his leave of the Pope last week and that at the present moment there is only a very under-secretary in charge of the Mission there?
