HC Deb 15 March 1927 vol 203 c1871W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has caused any inquiry to be made into the circumstances of the dismissal from the service of the Sudan Government in 1922 of Mr. F. H. Sunderland?

As the result of repeated representations by Mr. Sunderland his ease was personally considered by my two predecessors in office and by myself; it was also examined by the late Sir Lee Stack and by Sir Geoffrey Archer. The conciusion reached by all of us was that there existed no grounds whatever to call in question the decision of the Sudan Government.
