HC Deb 06 May 1914 vol 62 cc283-4W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will direct that copies of all dispatches addressed by His Majesty's representatives abroad at the public charge to the Committee for the Economic Preservation of Birds shall be furnished to all members of Standing Committee B, now engaged upon the discussion of the Importation of Plumage (Prohibition) Bill, in order that such members may be not less well-informed upon these matters than persons not serving upon the said Standing Committee?


I will place in the Library of the House of Commons as soon as possible, copies of any reports on the subject that have been communicated by or through the Foreign Office to any unofficial persons. But in some cases, I believe, the Foreign Office has not got copies of the reports and will have to obtain them.
