HC Deb 14 July 1910 vol 19 c746W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Foreign Office has received an invitation through the American Ambassador in London to appoint delegates to the World's Congress for the Deaf, to be held at Colorado Springs from the 6th to the 13th August; and whether he will take steps to appoint a delegate for that purpose?


The Congress is not held under the auspices or patronage of the Government of the United States, but an invitation from the President of the National Association of the Deaf has been received through the United States Ambassador. After reference to the Local Government Board and the Board of Education, I informed the Ambassador that His Majesty's Government were unable to appoint a delegate to the Congress.
