§ Mr. SPEAKER
I have to report to the House that I have received the following telegram from the President of the Greek Parliament:
§ 22nd April.
§ THE SPEAKER,
§ HOUSE OF COMMONS, LONDON.
§ I beg to inform you that on to-day's meeting I addressed the House of Parliament as follows:
§ Since Great Britain has lost her beloved King in the beginning of this year, the Greek House, having held no meetings except very short ones in connexion with its own formation, has had no opportunity to duly commemorate 284 the afflicting event. To-day, on the opening of its constitutional work, the House fulfils its duty. The months passed having in no way weakened its deep sentiments of sorrow, the Greek House addresses its supreme tribute of admiration and respect to the late Head of the most ancient of constitutional nations.
§ The commemorative speech of the Prime Minister ensued, and was followed by a few minutes silence in sign of mourning.
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE GREEK PARLIAMENT.
§ Is it the wish of the House that I should send a suitable reply?
