HC Deb 30 June 1924 vol 175 c953W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been drawn to the pronouncement by Monsieur Herriot in favour of withdrawing the French Embassy to the Vatican; what functions the British Embassy to the Vatican is now fulfilling; and whether he will now consider the withdrawal of the British Embassy to the Vatican?


Whether the British Mission to the Vatican should be permanently continued or withdrawn is a question which can be raised in the ordinary way on the Estimates. The present Government have had no occasion so far to discuss it. The policy of France in her attitude towards the Vatican is not necessarily relevant to this issue.
