HC Deb 03 August 1910 vol 19 cc2758-9W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any communication has been received from the United States Government requesting His Majesty's Government to send a delegate to open the Sixth Great International Esperanto Congress at Washington on 14th to 21st August; and, if so, whether, considering the importance of securing the adoption of an international key language, His Majesty's Government intend to depute such a delegate?


No request of the kind has been addressed to His Majesty's Government by the Government of the United States, but an invitation to send a delegate to the Esperanto Congress at Washington was forwarded by the committee of the congress through the United Wales Ambassador. His Majesty's Government have replied that they do not propose to send a representative to the congress.
