40. Captain CROOKSHANK
asked the Prime Minister whether, in the absence of the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs from this country, the Under-Secretary of State will be in charge of the Foreign Office; and, if not, what other arrangements are being made?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)
My right hon. Friend will be back before the end of August and I do not think that any formal rearrangement will be needed in the meantime. The Permanent Under-Secretary will be in charge, and if occasion arises the Foreign Office will, of course, be able to consult myself or the Lord President.
