HC Deb 06 June 1930 vol 239 cc2577-8W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether it is proposed to appoint a Minister to the Holy See at an early date or whether the post will be left vacant pending a settlement of the dispute between the Vatican and Malta?


Mr. Chilton, recently His Majesty's Minister at the Vatican, is proceeding to Santiago as His Majesty's Ambassador to Chile. No appointment has yet been made, and my right hon. Friend is not yet in a position to say when he will be able to announce the name of Mr. Chilton's successor.
