§ Mr. KING
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that Russia has now formally annexed Galicia; and whether, with a view to the British commercial and other interests in Galicia, application has been or will be made for a member of the British Consular service to be stationed at Lvoff (Lemberg)?
In view of the large British interests in that part of Europe I am considering the appointment of a British commercial agent to reside at Lvoff.
The Professor referred to, Zocloziecki, tendered his resignation of the post of British Vice-Consul in Lemberg early in July on his appointment to a high position in the State Technical Experimental Office in Vienna, where he intended for the future to reside.267W
§ Mr. KING
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that a large proportion of the population of Galicia, which has recently been annexed by Russia, is purely Ukrainian (Ruthenian); whether the Russian offer of autonomy to Poland is to be construed as involving an offer of autonomy to the Ukrainian population also; and, if this is so, whether that offer has been extended to the Ukrainian population of Northern Bukovina and of the Carpathian districts of Hungary?
