asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what steps are being taken to reopen British consulates in France.

Mr. McNeil

British consular posts have so far been reopened at Paris, Bordeaux, Havre, Lille, Lyons, Marseilles, Nice, Rouen and Strasbourg. It is expected that the post at Nantes will be reopened shortly.

Sir P. Hannon

Are all the consuls appointed in these places British nationals?

Mr. McNeil

Yes, Sir, they are whole-time posts.
