asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what is the total amount of annual expenditure under the heading "Frais de representation" at the various diplomatic posts; and will he arrange that in future the amount is separately stated annually, in the Foreign Office accounts presented to Parliament, under the letter S?


I have been asked to reply. The total sum provided forfrais de représentation to the Heads of Missions abroad for the year 1932-33 is £127,570. As regards the second part of the question, I will consider my hon. Friend's suggestion and communicate with him in due course.
