§ Sir A. LAMBERT WARD
asked the First Commissioner of Works whether any permanent official or officials of his Department other than architects, engineers, and supply officers, have visited since June, 1929, or propose to visit during the coming 12 months, any buildings occupied by British representatives or officials in oversea countries; and, if so, in what capacity, for what purpose, and at what cost to the Exchequer?
§ Mr. LANSBURY
No officials other than technical officers have been sent abroad since June, 1929, but I have asked the Permanent Secretary of my Department to proceed to Washington on 26th March on business connected with the new Embassy. The cost will be under £200.
