HC Deb 11 April 1946 vol 421 cc349-50W
Mr. Hollis

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs at what date His Majesty's High Commissioner in Australia will take up his duties.

Mr. Parker:

The new United Kingdom High Commissioner in Australia has arranged to travel by the first boat in April sailing direct for Australia. This is not likely to leave before the end of the month, and Mr. Williams will thus be enabled to meet the Prime Minister of Australia here on his arrival next week.
